In a statement trade unions said Volkswagen’s unit Skoda Auto plans on cancelling several shifts citing shortage of auto parts. The development comes ahead of the car maker’s annual general two-week leave.
Although the annual leave is scheduled for the first two weeks of August, a few shifts would have been already cancelled as of July 28, said the unions in their weekly magazine Skodovacky Odborar.
Skoda did not immediately respond to requests for comments.
Skoda Auto had already cancelled a few shifts in June.
Automakers across the globe have been struggling to meet production deadlines following a shortage of chips.
