GM's European unit Opel reaches an agreement with unions to halt production for a total of 20 days between September and the end of 2012 at two of its four German plants as the carmaker looks to cope with falling demand in the region. Opel will now apply for subsidies under the government's "Kurzarbeit" program, which compensates workers for part of their lost wages. (previous) (PR)
