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.
