The Nissan Management and the Avila works council signed today the agreement on the new collective agreement that will give way to the industrial plan that will turn the plant of trucks into a factory of spare parts from 2020.
This collective agreement allows the plant to be integrated into the “powerful” industrial hub that the Renault-Nissan Alliance has in Castilla y León, with the plants of the French company in Valladolid and Palencia, the company points out.
