Yesterday, a company executive told Reuters that Hyundai could miss its overseas sales target for September because fewer vehicles were shipped in August. Hyundai’s U.S. vehicle exports from South Korea dropped by a quarter in July from June.

The wage deal includes a 5.4 percent rise in basic salaries, a bonus equivalent to five months’ salary plus a 9.6 million Korean won ($8,500) payment for each worker.
