Hyundai workers to vote on strike-ending offer

Workers at Hyundai Motor are set to cast their votes on a plan which the South Korean automaker hopes will end the company's first strike in four years.

After four months of negotiations, Hyundai and its union officials have agreed a 5.4% rise in basic salaries' the scrapping of night shifts and a record bonus equivalent to five months wages.

The limited industrial action, which has been going on since July, has cost Hyundai nearly $1.5bn (£945m).

The BBC's Lucy Williamson reports.
