Volkswagen's Belgian Workers Return to Work

Workers at Volkswagen AG's Belgian plant returned to work Monday after a seven-week strike to protest the decision to lay off almost 3,000 of the carmaker's employees.

Workers last week narrowly voted to return to the plant on Monday, but it will likely take several more days before output recommences.

Volkwagen took the decision in November to phase out production of its Golf model at the plant near Brussels. Instead of fully closing down the plant, the German company said that up to 3,000 workers would be able to produce the latest Audi model as of 2009, partly compensating for the job cuts.
