Hyundai Motor, union strike tentative wage deal

SEOUL (Reuters) - Hyundai Motor Co <005380.KS> has reached a tentative wage deal with its South Korean labor union, a union spokesman said on Thursday.

Should the union approve the deal in a vote on Monday, Hyundai, the world's fifth-biggest carmaker along with affiliate Kia Motors <000270.KS>, should avoid further production losses. It had suffered a series of partial strikes.
