General Motors, implementing its restructuring programme has commenced a brutal campaign of plant closures and job cuts in Europe. The first to go is the plant in Antwerp, Belgium where 2,600 are employed at the Vauxhall/Opel plant. The plant, producing the Vectra and Astra models, will be closing down over the next few weeks and the production of those models will be allocated to other plants across Europe.
