PRAGUE (Reuters) - Workers at Volkswagen’s Slovak factory voted to strike from Tuesday over demands for a higher wage rise, the carmaker’s union said on Wednesday.
The union expects majority participation in the strike, leading to a production stop, union officials were quoted as saying in local media.
The union said in a statement the strike would be unlimited.
VW’s Slovak unit said last week that union demands for a 16 percent pay hike were unacceptable.
The company has offered a base pay rise of 4.3 percent, along with a one-off payment of 350 euros and other bonuses.
