Honda workers stage walkout at China plant: Nikkei

(REUTERS) - Honda Motor Co workers unhappy with small wage increases walked off their jobs earlier this week at a parts factory in south China, the Nikkei reported.

Some of the employees at the transmission plant in the Foshan, Guangdong Province stopped working on Monday night but resumed on Tuesday after Honda apparently agreed to bigger raises, the Japanese business daily said.

Production at the plant, which has more than 2,000 employees, was not greatly affected, Nikkei said.

Workers at the parts plant had highlighted growing labour unrest in the region in 2010 when they went on strike demanding higher pay.
