Opel, whose American parent company General Motors is facing financial woes, has introduced drastic cuts in production, with the fallout spreading to the automaker's factory in Gliwice, southern Poland.

As the American economic crisis increasingly bites in Europe, Opel's factory in Saragossa, Spain, its German plants and a Saab factory in Sweden-the brand is owned by Opel-will cut back work to 30 hours a week. The Gliwice plant has introduced two shifts instead of the previous three. Workers from the third shift are carrying out jobs that until recently were outsourced. "None of the employees on a regular work contract will be laid off due to production cuts," said Przemysław Byszewski, Opel press officer in Poland.
