Honda Motor (HMC.NYSE, 7267.TYO) was forced to stop production at two car-assembly plants in Guangdong following the latest strike at a parts supplier, the Wall Street Journal reported. A short-lived strike affected a spring manufacturer owned by NHK Spring (5991.TYO) and a Guangzhou company, but Honda said it would restart its plant on Thursday as the spring maker resumed production. The strike also affected production at Nissan Motor (NSANY.NYSE, 7201.TYO). A separate supplier strike at a plant owned by Denso (DNZOY.NYSE, 6902.TYO) affecting production at a Toyota Motor (TM.NYSE, 7203.TYO) plant in Guangdong remains unresolved. Honda has been affected by a string of labor disputes involving suppliers of airbags, lock systems and other products.
