Audi workers in Mexico extend strike deadline to Jan. 11

MEXICO CITY, Dec 30 (Reuters) – Worker representatives at German automaker Audi’s Mexico plant have extended a strike deadline to Jan. 11 from Jan. 1 as they aim to reach an agreement with the firm over pay raises, a union document seen by Reuters on Friday showed.

The Independent Union of Audi Mexico Workers (SITAUDI) and Audi had previously negotiated two options to raise wages for the plant’s 4,000 unionized employees in the central state of Puebla.
