MEXICO CITY -- Union workers at Volkswagen AG's Mexico plant agreed last week to stop work next month. The stoppage will allow the plant to prepare for the year-end launch of the next generation of Golf cars, Reuters reported.
VW proposed the monthlong November stoppage to its 10,000 union employees at the Puebla, Mexico, plant. The plant also produces the Jetta and the New Beetle cars.
"It's indispensable," said union Secretary General Jose Luis Rodriguez. "This technical stoppage is required to modify production."
