Toyota’s Venezuela unit calls for end to strike

CARACAS -(MarketWatch)- The Venezuelan unit of Japanese car maker Toyota Motor Corp. (TM, 7203.TO) is asking workers to end a strike that has halted operations at its production plant in the state of Sucre for nearly two weeks.

“We are greatly concerned that the hostile attitude of some workers and the push to illegally strike by [the union] Sintratoyota can be detrimental to the continuity of operations at the plant,” the company said in a statement.

The strike has paralyzed the plant, which employs 2,200 people, since July 28, Toyota said. In the statement, the company denied that it had failed to comply with its responsibilities to workers but didn’t offer more details.
