TOKYO—Honda Motor Co., Ltd. will continue to reduce output at plants in Canada and the United States due to a disruption in parts shipments caused by a labour dispute at ports along the U.S. West Coast.

Honda said plants in Alliston, Ont., and Greensburg, Ind., will continue to be affected by the port strike from Feb. 24 through March 2.

The Japanese automaker had previously cut production at all five of its North American plants, but has delivered parts by air to restore output at two Ohio plants and its second plant in Alliston.

The initial one-week slowdown from Feb. 16 to 23 reduced production by 20,000 cars while the second one-week slowdown will reduce output by 5,000.
