Next-Generation Chevrolet Cruze Could Still Be Built In Korea If Labor Union Subsides2
Not long ago, General Motors would have scoffed at the idea of building the next-generation Chevrolet Cruze at its Gunsan factory in South Korea. However, a recent report states that the company may be looking to build the new 2016 Cruze at the plant if a union strike is called off.
Automotive News reports that South Korean employees voted to strike “after three months of discussions over salaries and production volume failed to reach a conclusion.” With General Motors pulling Chevrolet out of Europe, production in South Korea has fallen, as a number of the Chevrolets GM exported to Europe were built in the Asian country.
There’s no telling if the union will agree to the deal, but GM Authority will report on the fate of the next Cruze’s production site as soon as the two groups strike something.
