SEOUL, July 30 (Reuters) - General Motors’ South Korean workers voted in favour of a wage deal on Thursday, averting a major strike for a second consecutive year.
GM Korea agreed to pay 10.5 million won ($8,990) in bonuses and incentives to each worker and raise the basic monthly wage by 83,000 won.
Fifty-five percent of GM Korean workers approved the tentative deal reached on Monday, a union spokesman told Reuters.
The latest wage agreement includes plans to make next-generation Chevrolet Malibu sedans on a second production line at its Bupyeong plant. There has been much speculation that production at the plant would be scaled back. (Reporting by Sohee Kim; Editing by Edwina Gibbs)
