MADRID -- Mercedes-Benz plans to invest 1.2 billion euros ($1.23 billion) in its Vitoria plant in northern Spain after workers backed a new labor agreement, unions UGT and CCOO said.
About 57 percent of the plant's nearly 5,000 workers voted in favor 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, the unions said in separate statements.
Mercedes builds the Vito and V-Class vans at the plant.
The automaker 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.
