Hyundai Motor plant resumes output

SEOUL, June 11 Fri Jun 10, 2011 7:34pm EDT

SEOUL, June 11 (Reuters) - South Korea's Hyundai Motor (005380.KS) resumed output Saturday morning at a local plant producing two popular sedans after the carmaker reached an agreement with its labour union, a union official said.

Hyundai workers suspended its sole Korean facility producing its best-selling Sonata and Grandeur sedans Thursday afternoon after an employee there committed suicide, leaving notes accusing the company of "suppressing the labour movement," according to media reports.

"We have resumed production from 6:15 AM today and will do Saturday and Sunday works as previously planned," the union official told Reuters. (Reporting by Hyunjoo Jin; Editing by Gary Hill)
