Workers at the Opel plant in Spain on Monday voted to accept a Magna International plan that would see the loss of 900 jobs, unions have said.

Members of the UGT and CCOO unions voted to approve the plan by a huge majority, and its leaders lifted a strike call, Reuters reported.

Magna and unions at the Opel factory in Figueruelas, northern Spain, reached the preliminary deal on Thursday. It envisages the loss of 900 of the more than 7,000 jobs at the factory, less than the 1,300 Magna had sought when the talks began last week and around half the number it had orginally proposed.

Magna also undertook to maintain the bulk of the existing production at the plant, which produces the Corsa model. Unions had feared some of the production would be moved to Germany.
