Volkswagen strike in Brazil

Workers at Volkswagen's largest factory in Brazil have gone on strike after the carmaker said it was sacking 1,800 staff as part of restructuring reforms.

Union workers said the industrial action would last ‘indefinitely’.

The German manufacturer has been in talks over redundancies, wages and possibly closing the Sao Bernardo do Campo site.

VW said last week it needed to push through restructuring reforms. The job cuts it has announced are due to take effect on November 21.
