Two production facilities close as workers strike again
10 June 2010

Honda has had to halt production at two of its four car assembly factories in China after another strike by workers.

Honda said the walkout at its Foshan Fengfu facility, which is 70 per cent owned by its Chinese subsidiary Yutaka Giken, started on Monday.

Negotiations to resolve the dispute have begun.

Last week's strike was resolved when workers received a 24 per cent pay rise.

Chinese workers with tintanet are obviously seeing all the nice things they could buy if only they could afford them. Expect major upheavals in China workplace, followed by a levelling out of the world economic picture as Chinese folk start using their bigger wagepackets to buy good quality Western-made stuff (made more cheaply now that we're on tightly controlled/poverty wages). It's a natural balancing process. For us, it's all good. All we need do is use our manufacturing industries to exploit these emerging economies. Oh. Well, it sounded good up till then.

    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
