Audi to slow production for six days

R8 Neckarslum lineStop us if you've heard this one before. Another automaker is slowing down production in the face of slowing sales. This time, though, it's Audi that's making the announcement... the same Audi that posted impressive sales of over a million automobiles in 2008, making last year Audi's best ever despite the overall decline of the auto market. It seems that the German automaker realizes that all good things must come to an end, however, as it plans to schedule six days of reduced hours at its Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm plants. While this affects some 25,000 workers, it effectively safeguards their jobs in the process and preserves an existing agreement that between Audi and its labor union, called the Zukunft Audi (Future of Audi), which prohibits layoffs in the face of declining sales until 2011.
