Volkswagen Slovakia will most likely not produce the VW luxury models Touareg and Porsche Cayenne on Thursday and Friday, March 12-13, the leader of the factory’s trade union, Zoroslav Smolinsky, told the SITA newswire and he expects the same measure to be taken for the last two days of the following week.

“This will be decided definitively next Monday or Tuesday,” Smolinsky said. He added that the affected employees can take holidays or make use of their flexi accounts, which allow them to get 100 percent of their wages.

On March 4 the carmaker announced it would limit its assembly production for eight days from April 6 to 17, 2009, SITA reported. The measure will not affect the manufacture of important component parts in its Martin factory. Production at VW’s Bratislava factory had also been suspended from February 16 to 24 this year. (SITA)
