IG Metall union opposes potential Liberty Steel takeover of Thyssenkrupp's steel unit
DUESSELDORF, Oct 16 (Reuters) - The German IG Metall union rejects a potential takeover of Thyssenkrupp's TKAG.DE steel unit by Liberty Steel Group as it could lead to job losses and a breakup of the German company, its North Rhine-Westphalian regional leader told Reuters.
"This is exactly what we warned about," Knut Giesler said. "Politicians must act now."
The privately-held Liberty Steel Group is set to make a bid for Thyssenkrupp's ailing steel unit as soon as Friday, a source close to the process told Reuters on Thursday.
