More than 12,000 employees at Volkswagen's largest factory in Brazil stopped working for part of the day on Tuesday to protest the car maker's decision to cut nearly 4,000 jobs, Reuters reported. A union spokeswoman told the news agency some 8,000 employees on the morning shift at VW's Anchieta plant had walked out for four hours as 1,932 workers handed their letters of dismissal back to the German car maker's human resources department.
