Holland: Mitsubishi workers wildcat strike over plant closure

Mitsubishi workers took wildcat strike action last week over worries that DaimlerChrysler would close their plant when Smart ForFour productions ends.

Forbes news reported the DaimlerChrysler last week confirmed it will halt production of the model, which is manufactured in the Netherlands through a partnership arrangement with Mitsubishi.

Mitsubishi also manufactures its Colt vehicle at the plant, and workers are currently in talks with management over their future. The employees want to convince the carmaker to produce an additional vehicle at the facility, which would ensure their future once Smart production ends.

Mitsubishi was expected to announce its decision on 3rd April.
