VW settles supplier strike

VW settles supplier strike

volkswagen-group_200x200Volkswagen and two key suppliers have settled a dispute with workers that could have seen production delays at a number of its key German plans.

The company, with Automobilguss and Cartrim, has been in marathon talks with the workers, who have seen their hours cut following Volkswagen reducing the number of contracts the companies held off the back of the emissions scandal.

The company confirmed last night an agreement had been reached with the suppliers and workers.

“The locations affected by the recent disruptions are preparing to resume production as soon as possible,” a spokesperson told DW.com

Deliveries of crucial components would be resumed shortly, both sides agreeing not to provide any details of their settlement.

Before the announcement, Volkswagen New Zealand spokesperson Ben Montgomery told Auto Media Group the local distributor was monitoring the situation.

“We have strong stock arrivals for all-new Tiguan plus our other core models. So we don’t envisage any disruption based on the information we have currently available.”
