Renault Workers Strike In Brazil

SAO PAULO (AP) -- Workers at the Brazilian subsidiary of French carmaker Renault have walked off the job to demand increased profit-sharing.

The auto workers' union says the strike by 3,500 workers has paralyzed production, normally 760 vehicles per day.

A statement from the union says it has rejected the company's offer of 7,500 reals ($4,000) for each worker in profit-sharing. It is pushing for 9,000 reals ($5,000).

The strike began Friday.

Repeated calls to Renault do Brasil SA went unanswered.
