Volkswagen To Join Strike

25 April 2003 , 12:30367
Metalworkers at a Brazilian Volkswagen plant are going to join the strike supported by GM and Renault metalworkers.

A union spokeswoman said some 2,600 employees at the German auto giant's Sao Jose dos Pinhais plant in Parana state were demanding a one-time bonus of $166 to compensate for a sharp surge in inflation late last year that cut workers' buying power.

Workers have rejected company?s offer to make payment in five monthly installments.
On Friday the company is to decide if it accepts the counteroffer, after which workers would be required by law to give 48 hours notice before going on strike.

Some 10,000 workers at a General Motors Corp. factory and another 2,500 at a Renault auto plant here have been striking since Tuesday, bringing production to a halt at both sites.
