    ST. PETERSBURG, February 15 (RIA Novosti) - Workers at Ford's car assembly plant in the Leningrad Region in Russia's northwest have ended their strike, the company's press secretary said Thursday.

    Workers at the Ford facility went on a one-day strike February 14 to demand that the company stop using temporary workers, recognize hazardous conditions of work and guarantee jobs for workers injured at the plant.

    "As of midnight Thursday, production resumed. Today negotiations with the plant's trade union are planned," Yekaterina Kulinenko said.

    The Ford plant produces about 75,000 cars a year, mainly the Focus model. The average monthly wage at the plant is 16,000-19,000 rubles (about $608-722).
