Skoda closes its main plantMarch 18, 2020
Skoda will suspend production at its plants in the Czech Republic for two weeks starting Wednesday, the company said.
Skoda, the country’s largest exporter, said it would pay workers 70% of their wages until March 29, and then 75% until April 5 at the time of work stoppage.
Skoda’s owner, the Volkswagen Group, said on Tuesday that it would suspend production in factories across Europe, probably for two to three weeks, as the coronavirus pandemic hits sales and disrupted supply chains.
Skoda confirmed two cases of coronavirus in its employees and isolated several workers at home.
