Hyundai Motor's South Korean union to stage partial strike

Workers to strike for four hours
SEOUL (Reuters) - Hyundai Motor's South Korean workers plan to stage a strike for four hours on Aug. 22 as wage talks with the automaker make little progress, a union spokesman said on Thursday.

The spokesman said union executives have not decided yet on whether they will extend the strike, saying talks will continue next week.

Hyundai Motor workers last week voted to strike for a third consecutive year at its domestic plants, which make nearly 40 percent of its vehicles sold globally.
