Skoda Auto will extend its Christmas break until January 10 according to unions at the largest automaker as the automotive sector in the Czech Republic continues to have a hard time with parts deliveries disruptions.

The break will begin on December 23 at Skoda, but only part of it will be counted as a holiday for the workers. They will get compensation for the other part representing 80% of their wages because production will temporarily stop due to the company’s troubles, the unions said in their weekly bulletin.

Supply bottlenecks for chips have affected the automotive industry worldwide. The shortages again dragged heavily on Czech industrial output in October, because of which teh start to the fourth quarter was weak.
