Outside strike halts Holden work

From The Telegraph

A STRIKE at an Adelaide component supplier has stopped production of Holden cars in the city. Holden yesterday ran out of exhaust systems supplied by Walker Australia and opted to bring forward a rostered day off for workers at its Elizabeth assembly plant.
Spokesman Jason Laird said the company was watching the dispute closely and was hopeful of an early resolution.

Holden built only 320 cars yesterday, about half its normal number, but will consider various options to make up the lost production because of a strong demand in both export and domestic markets for its vehicles.

However, Mr Laird said the company was committed to a four-day weekend this week, including the Anzac Day holiday on Thursday and a scheduled rostered day off on Friday.

Workers at Walker Australia walked off the job on Friday in a disagreement with management over aspects of an enterprise agreement signed last year.

They voted to stay on strike yesterday but are to meet again this morning to consider the next step in the dispute.

The industrial action has not yet affected production at Mitsubishi's car plant in Adelaide.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
