FILE - In this March 26, 2012 file picture a car shows the Opel logo while reflecting the front of the Opel car manufacturer plant in Bochum on,  in Bochum, Germany.  General Motors says its Opel subsidiary is in "active talks" about using its German factories more efficiently.   Proposals up for discussion between the company's management, trade unions and works councils include putting off a wage increase slated for this year and no layoffs before 2016 instead of through 2014.  GM has been struggling to return its European business to profitability amid tough competition among mass-market carmakers.  The U.S. carmaker could also build non-Opel models at its German plants in order to better use its plant capacity.   But the Bochum plant will not get further production orders after the current Zafira Tourer comes to the end of its life cycle. (AP Photo/Frank Augstein,file)
