Beginning on May 13, Volkswagen has suspended second shift operations at its plant in Taubaté, Brazil, giving workers collective vacations for 20 days.
The workers will return on June 3.
The suspension of work was already in the production schedule for the year because of a smaller volume of exports to Argentina, including the Gol, Up! and Voyage models which are produced in Taubaté.
Despite the reduction in exports, Volkswagen said that the total volume of production in Brazil for 2019 will be approximately 20% higher than that of 2018.
Volkswagen employs approximately 3,100 workers in Taubaté.
