VW plant could have problems as car seat supplier faces strike

One of the biggest net exporters from Slovakia, car plant Volkswagen in Bratislava, could find itself unable to complete its cars because of a lack of car seats.

This is because its biggest supplier of car seats, Johnson Controls based on Lozorno, could find its workforce on strike over a demand for higher pay. This comes as as the company management failed to reach an agreement with the trade unions after talks broke down.

Volkswagen has other suppliers for its seats, but as it gets most of its seats from Johnson Controls, it could find its production line bottlenecking if the strike goes ahead.
