Continental AG has reportedly told employees at its Hanover tech centre that it will move some activities abroad unless employees agree to a 40-hour work week, with no pay increase.
The Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung said Conti will cut employment at the centre by 130, to 370 if the employees do not agree to increase the workweek from 37.5 hours. Negotiations with employee representatives are due to start next Monday (4 October).
