From Automotive News China:

Chinese workers at FAW-GM Light Commercial Vehicle Co.'s Hongta plant went back to work Sunday after staging a one-week strike.

FAW-GM Light Commercial Vehicle Co. is a 50-50 joint venture between General Motors and China FAW Group Corp.

The workers and some of the plant's retirees blocked the plant gates and demanded higher wages and housing allowances, according to the plant's Web site.

After company executives and local government officials promised to "seriously" consider the workers' demands, the strike ended and the plant resumed full production on Sunday, the company reported.

The plant, in southwest China's Yunnan province, is one of FAW-GM's three facilities. The plant produces light trucks and multipurpose vehicles with annual capacity of 100,000 units.
