Strike forces Honda to halt China factories

Honda Motor Co. shut down all four of its car plants in China after 1,850 workers at a parts-making unit went on strike demanding a pay raise, crippling production in the world’s biggest auto market.

While labour unrest has increased in China, Yasuko Matsuura, a Tokyo-based spokesperson for the carmaker, said the walkout is the first to affect Honda’s production in the country.
