Mercedes Benz to invest 1.2 billion euros in Spain

German automaker Mercedes-Benz plans to invest 1.2 billion euros in its Vitoria plant in northern Spain after workers backed a new labour agreement, unions UGT and CCOO said on Tuesday.

About 57% of the plant’s nearly 5,000 workers voted in favour of a deal that defines working conditions and pay raises until 2026, allowing the automaker to invest in the production of new models and electric vehicles, Reuters reported quoting separate statements of the unions.

Mercedes-Benz was not immediately available for comment.

The company has said it expects to assemble 158,000 vehicles in Vitoria, its second largest van assembly plant, in 2022 and plans to increase output in the coming years.
