Volkswagen Puebla to send workers back to plant on Tuesday, June 16th


MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Volkswagen AG’s <VOWG_p.DE> Mexican unit will begin sending workers back to its plant in the central state of Puebla on Tuesday, June 16th.

We are doing this for “preparation and training eyeing a gradual start further ahead,” the company said in a statement on Sunday, June 14.

The government of Puebla, where the German automaker and its luxury brand unit Audi <NSUG.DE> have major plants, said last week it is not ready to reopen its automotive sector due to concerns about the coronavirus. Mexico has registered more than 17,000 deaths from the pandemic.

The Volkswagen plant in Puebla has been playing around, saying that were ready to open, for the fifth or sixth time in the last two weeks, but the state government has not allowed them to do so just yet.
