Automaker Renault demanded pay and working time concessions from its French workers on Tuesday and warned that the outcome of talks may affect future production plans, unions said.

Opening negotiations on a new nationwide labor deal, Renault indicated that it wanted an agreement by the end of January and it would not choose production sites for future models before then, according to workers' representatives who attended the meeting.

"There is a clear blackmail attempt here to link factory decisions with the productivity issues," a CGT union official said.

Renault said in a statement that "all proposals and solutions" will be discussed during "at least" four more meetings with union representatives by the end of the year.
