Workers at an Indian autoparts maker have ended a six-week strike, which had hit supplies to General Motors and Ford and caused the shutdown of some North American plants, an official at the Indian firm has said.

"We had a settlement last night," Surendra Singh, senior vice president for human resources at Rico Auto Industries told Reuters on Friday. "Within a day or two, we'll be able to achieve 100% production."

More than 2,000 workers at the Rico transmission parts plant, situated outside the Indian capital Delhi, began the strike on 21 September after the company suspended some of their colleagues citing indiscipline.

Singh said the firm would make up for the lost production by increasing plant capacity utilisation.
