Volkswagen cuts 28,000 workers' hours over supply woes

Frankfurt: German auto giant Volkswagen said on Monday it would halt production at six plants for several days as a legal dispute with two key suppliers deepened.

Around 27,700 workers at factories in Emden, Zwickau, Kassel, Salzgitter, Brunswick, and the firm`s home base of Wolfsburg would see their work hours slashed by the end of August, the group said in a statement.

VW said it would resume talks with the suppliers of gearbox parts and seat covers on Monday, in a bid to restore deliveries and allow production to restart after weeks of legal wrangling.
