STUTTGART, Germany, July 12 (Reuters) - German-American auto maker DaimlerChrysler (XETRA:DCXGn.DE - News) may cut 6,000 jobs and shift some production of the new C-class models outside of Germany if its works council opposes deeper cost cuts, it said on Monday.

Until now, employee representatives have agreed to just 180 million euros ($223 million) in annual personnel cost cuts despite demands from management to save 500 million euros, the firm said.

Guenter Fleig, Daimler's management board member responsible for personnel, said the possible job cuts would be at the company's Sindelfingen plant near Stuttgart.

The company wants to move production of the C-class, due in 2007, to its more efficient Bremen plant in northern Germany and to its East London factory in South Africa and wants to drop plans to build derivative models.
