March 21 Honda Motor Co workers unhappy
with small wage increases walked off their jobs earlier this
week at a parts factory in south China, the Nikkei reported.
Some of the employees at the transmission plant in the
Foshan, Guangdong Province stopped working on Monday night but
resumed on Tuesday after Honda apparently agreed to bigger
raises, the Japanese business daily said.
Production at the plant, which has more than 2,000
employees, was not greatly affected, Nikkei said.
Workers at the parts plant had highlighted growing labor
unrest in the region in 2010 when they went on strike demanding
higher pay. (r.reuters.com/jet76t)
