Like Autoblog explained to you a few days ago, DaimlerChrysler's German assembly line workers were walking out intermittently to protest the company's sorry attempt to save 600 million smackers by cruelly cutting its employees' overtime and break pay. The automaker has apparently reached a deal with the metalworkers' union IG Metall, which counteroffered with $245 million in reductions. DC threatened to move C-Class production to South Africa if cost-saving measures could not be implemented, but as of now, the new C-Class is scheduled for a 2007 release, out of the current Sindelfingen plant.
