Honda says it will temporarily resume normal production at its Ohio plants after six days of shift reductions related to a West Coast port contract dispute. The automaker announced Thursday there are still parts shortages at some plants, but it has enough parts to operate normally in Ohio. Ongoing negotiations between West Coast dockworkers and their employers to reach a new contract have been deadlocked in recent weeks, leaving billions of dollars in cargo on ships unable to dock. Honda is relying on air shipments for some needed parts as the dispute continues. The automaker employs more than 14,000 workers at plants across Ohio.
