Hyundai Motor Co. Ltd. unionized workers vote to accept an 8.6% wage hike and a 5-day workweek. The labor union also wins the right to participate in some key managerial decisions, particularly on job security issues. The deal ends nearly seven weeks of labor protests. Meanwhile, Kia Motors Corp., a Hyundai affiliate, is facing demands from its union for an 11% wage increase and a workweek reduction from six days to five.
