Legal dispute halts production at 6 Volkswagen plants
Volkswagen has suspended production in six German plants because suppliers have not been delivering parts
Volkswagen said last week that it would have to suspend production of the Golf and Passat at the Wolfsburg and Emden plants for around a week because the suppliers weren’t delivering parts.
On Aug. 22, the company said 27,700 workers were affected by the dispute at six plants in Germany.
Volkswagen and the German-based suppliers are expected to hold talks Monday. Lower Saxony economy minister Olaf Lies, who sits on Volkswagen’s supervisory board, told Deutschlandfunk radio: “I can only encourage all involved not to let it drag on.”
