Australian exhaust system supplier Walker Australia, a unit of Tenneco Automotive Inc., ends its 12-day strike that caused production stoppages at assembly plants of all four local auto makers. Some 400 employees at Walker’s Adelaide plant returned to work May 1 when an agreement was reached with the Australian Mfg. Workers Union, giving Walker employees certain entitlement benefits. A spokesman for the union says the auto plants should be up and running in the next 24 hours.
