About 100 workers at a Honda-related plant in south China's Guangdong Province have staged a strike, demanding pay rises and more vacation time, local authorities said Tuesday.

The strike began Monday morning and continued Tuesday at Foshan Fengfu Autoparts Co. Ltd. (Fengfu), said Liu Yousun, spokesman for the Shancheng District government of Foshan City.

The local government was mediating negotiations between the workers and their employer, Liu said.

Beijing-based Honda spokesman Zhu Linjie said Fengfu supplied Honda mufflers and other exhaust system parts.

Fengfu is a joint-venture between Japanese company Yutaka Giken, a subsidiary of Honda, and Taiwan's Moonstone Holding Ltd.

Honda was not a shareholder in Fengfu and had no direct involvement in its management and operation, he said.

The production of Guangqi-Honda was not yet affected because it had sufficient inventory, Zhu said.
