Honda’s Chinese car plants are now operating normally

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

After experiencing labor disruptions recently, the plants of Honda Motor Co. in China are already operating normally and will remain open this weekend, according to Takayuki Fujii, Honda's spokesman in China.

For two days last week, production at two car factories was halted due to the shortage parts as its supplier was hit by a strike.

An earlier report by the official Xinhua news agency stated that a strike at another parts supplier, a lock factory, could suspend Honda's car assembly operations in China.

Fuji explained that talks with workers are ongoing. However, he declined to say how the strike would affect production next week. In China, Saturday and Sunday are officially work days, ahead of a three-day public holiday.

Xinhua cited that last Friday, a spokesman for Honda Motor (China) Investment Co. Ltd., the owner of the lock plant, said that "the current inventory of locks can only last until Saturday" and also that it has not yet set production plans for after June 13.

Last Friday, hundreds of workers at the Zhongshan factory of Honda Lock, which makes locks for Honda cars, refused to work.

They demanded an increase in their pay as well as the right to choose their own representatives rather than the state-sanctioned unions that are said to be submissive to management.
