Report: Audi Hungaria employees could go on strike
A potential strike is looming at the Hungarian plant of German car manufacturer Audi in Győr, as a result of a disagreement between the management and the Independent Trade Union of Audi Hungaria (AHFSZ), with regards to the wage increases, Hungarian online daily index.hu reported this morning. The union reportedly established a strike committee.
The AHFSZ asked for at least a HUF 15,000 uniform raise to basic wages, retroactive to January, the online daily reported. Furthermore, the union also asked for a revision to the current salary system, and called upon the creation of a “working group” to decide on a new wage system, index.hu added.
Audiʼs executive director of personal affairs was informed of the establishment of the strike committee. For the moment, it is unknown when and under what circumstances the work stoppage will take place, index.hu noted.
