Strike At World Auto Giants

23 April 2003 , 10:38387
Metalworkers at a General Motors Corp. plant and a Renault auto factory went on a strike in Brazil.

Almost 7,500 workers launched the strike to push for higher wages to compensate for rising inflation.

In addition to a 10.38% wage increase, GM workers are demanding the U.S. automaker cut their work week to 36 hours from 40 hours. At the Renault plant, union leaders are pushing for a 14.61% wage increase from the French automaker.

Officials at both companies confirmed the strikes, but declined further comment.
