Volkswagen AG will resume operations in Mexico on June 15
German automotive manufacturing company Volkswagen Group (VOWG) announced on Monday that it would gradually resume operations in the states of Puebla and Guanajuato on June 15. The company decided to pause its activities last March due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Volkswagen would only allow 30% of its workforce in staggered shifts.
According to United Auto Workers’ (UAW) spokesman Brian Rothenberg, Volkswagen also added some cleaning and quarantine protocols inside its facilities.
The Volkswagen Group is still waiting for the signal from the Mexican government to restart its biggest plant in the world which is located in Puebla.
“There are no conditions in the State of Puebla to restart activities in the automotive and construction industries,” the Puebla state government said in an official decree that was issued last week.
