Honda halts output at China plant for strike at supplier plant.

BEIJING, June 23 Kyodo

Honda Motor Co. has suspended production at a car assembly plant in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong due to a strike at a local plant run by Japanese auto parts supplier NHK Spring Co., company officials said Wednesday.

The Honda plant in the city of Guangzhou is one of two assembly plants operated by the second-largest Japanese automaker's joint venture with Guangzhou Automobile Industry Group Co., producing mainline Honda models such as the Accord and the Fit.

The strike at the NHK Spring plant for springs and other parts, which has a workforce of around 500, started Tuesday, according to officials of the parts supplier.

A recent wave of strikes in China has hit not only Honda but also Toyota Motor Corp.
