Hungary - Audi workers strike - January 31, 2017

Audi workers at an engine plant stopped work for two hours on 26 January 2017 in a protest over pay. Earlier on the Audi's workers had set up a strike committee in the dispute. The AHFSZ union said in a statement that it continued to believe there could be a compromise wage deal reached with Audi but the company so far has not reacted on the union’s demands. The action by Audi workers follows a December agreement with unions at Daimler's factory that will see base salaries increase by 10% in 2017 and 2018.
