China: Honda plants resume production

Shanghai, June 11 - Production resumes today at two vehicle assembly plants in southern China after a strike at an exhaust parts maker ended.

However, a new labour dispute at a factory in the southern province of Guangdong that produces car locks and key sets for Honda remains ongoing, a spokesman said.

The latest action to hit Honda comes after suicides at Taiwanese high tech firm Foxconn and violent clashes at a Taiwan-funded rubber factory in China which have highlighted growing worker discontent over pay and conditions.

Although China’s economic growth has been spurred by lower costs of production, especially the lower cost of labour, workers are now increasingly demanding their share of the pie as greater affluence spreads throughout the Middle Kingdom.
