SEOUL (Reuters) -- Hyundai Motor Co.'s South Korean workers plan to extend a partial strike by another two days after the latest round of wage talks failed to produce an agreement, a union spokesman said today.
More than 40,000 unionized workers plan to idle the automaker's South Korean plants for eight hours on Wednesday and on Friday, the spokesman said.
The workers had already staged a partial strike on Monday and had stopped work for three days last week. So far, the stoppages have cost the automaker 19,441 vehicles worth 398.7 billion Korean won (267.5 million euros).
Hyundai labor unions have said they're demanding a pay increase of 130,498 won ($117) a month and for 30 percent of net income to be distributed to workers.
