GME ECO II Project
“Requirements and Perspectives of the GENERAL MOTORS EUROPE EMPLOYEES COOPERATION II - (GME ECO II)”
Establishing the General Motors Europe Employees' Task Force to strengthen social dialogue
The Project is co-financed by the European Commission - budget heading 04030303
The EMF finalised the General Motors Europe Employees' Co-operation II (GMEECO II) project in January 2009. The 12-month project, co-financed by the European Commission, has been implemented, together with the General Motors Europe Employee Forum (EEF - the EWC of GME), under dramatic circumstances.
One of the original objectives of the project was to internally agree on the planned site selection process for the next generation “global gamma platform” (Corsa, Meriva, Tigra, etc.) in order to reduce internal competition among the involved sites in Spain and Germany and a potential production site in Poland (FSO Warsaw).
The second project target concerned the threatened future of engine, transmission, and component production in Europe (GM Powertrain) and involved discussion of possible strategies and reactions to this threat – (see also ParL newsletter July 2008 – http://www.sda-asbl.org/TestiPDF/Parl3-08-En.pdf).
The final conference of GME ECO II will provide an opportunity to summarise and discuss the outcome of the work carried out by the GME ECO II task force together with the workers' representatives of the sites involved in the GAMMA platform and Powertrain projects.
