Volkswagen settle supplier disputes

Volkswagen settle supplier disputes

10:00 25 August in Dispute Resolution & Litigation, News & Community

Volkswagen has settled a major dispute with suppliers that had disrupted car production at more than half its German plants and threatened to derail its recovery following the diesel emissions scandal.

Talks continued well into the night as the German car maker said it had resolved its differences with CarTrim and ES Automobilguss who make car seats and gearbox parts.

After more than 20 hours of talks, the suppliers have agreed to re-start deliveries.

About 28,000 workers were affected across six of the car maker’s ten German factories on Monday when it halted production of the top selling Golf and Passat models
