Hyundai Motor Co Recalls 5,200 Azera Sedans In U.S. For Airbag Sensor Issue-Reuters
Tuesday, 2 Jul 2013 07:52am EDT 

Reuters reported that Hyundai Motor Co is recalling about 5,200 Azera sedans in the United States to address an issue where the airbag may deploy with less or greater force than needed in an accident. The South Korean automaker is recalling the 2012 and 2013 model-year cars because the occupant detection system may fail to properly differentiate whether the front-seat passenger occupant is an adult, child or a child restraint seat, according to documents filed with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The result could be the bags deploying with the incorrect force and that could lead to increased risk of injury. Hyundai expects to begin notifying owners in the third quarter.  Full Article

Hyundai Motor Co Row With Labor Union Causes Production Disruptions-DJ
Wednesday, 17 Apr 2013 03:17am EDT 

Dow Jones reported that an ongoing row between Hyundai Motor Co. and its labor union over weekend payments is causing production disruptions at South Korea's automaker, costing it some $732 million in lost revenues. Plant workers belonging to Hyundai's 45,000 member labor union have refused to work over the last six weekends after the implementation of a new shift arrangement that they claim results in lower wages for weekend work. The 12 weekend days in which Hyundai's plants were left idle since March 4 has led to a production shortfall of 41,000 vehicles, worth 820 billion won ($732 million). While Hyundai and its labor union remain in talks, including a meeting that took place on Tuesday, the two sides remain at odds over an acceptable weekend wage level. In August, they agreed to replace two 10-hour shifts with one eight- and one nine-hour shift. With the change, the strenuous overnight shifts were eliminated, with all shifts, that run Monday-Sunday, now ending by 1:30 a.m. Hyundai believed it was no longer necessary to offer overtime payments for workers during weekends after the end of overnight work. The union, however, thinks otherwise, insisting that workers be paid overtime for the weekend shifts just as before.  Full Article

Reuters reported that a U.S. lawsuit has been filed against Hyundai Motor Co and affiliate Kia Motors Corp, seeking $775 million in damages in one of the biggest known actions against the automakers since they admitted overstating the fuel economy of some their vehicles.
