VW boss chides Porsche chief

The Star Early Edition - - INTERNATIONAL -

VOLK­SWA­GEN chief ex­ec­u­tive Matthias Mueller strongly crit­i­cised Porsche’s labour chief in the Ger­man daily Heil­bron­ner Stimme yes­ter­day over public re­marks about Audi’s man­age­ment, in a sign of grow­ing ten­sions within the au­to­mo­tive group. Uwe Hueck, head of Porsche’s works coun­cil and a mem­ber of VW’s su­per­vi­sory board, had given an in­ter­view with Bild am Son­ntag news­pa­per in which he called for Audi man­agers to be dis­missed over state­ments made about the brand’s diesel en­gines. The com­ments of Uwe Hueck are any­thing but help­ful,” VW chief Mueller told Heil­bron­ner Stimme. “The su­per­vi­sory board cer­tainly needs no lec­tur­ing on how it has to do its job.” The na­ture and man­ner of Hueck’s com­ments do not chime with VW’s cor­po­rate cul­ture, said Mueller. – Reuters
