Striking workers at Kia Motors Corp. plants in South Korea have reached an agreement with the auto maker, ending strikes that began late last month, say reports. Workers accepted the deal Kia offered last week that includes an 85,000 won ($73.15) monthly salary hike and a performance bonus equaling 150% of salary plus 800,000 won ($688.45) (see related story: Kia Workers to Vote on New Offer). Workers also will receive another 10,000 won ($8.61) monthly allowance every month from Kia.
