MEXICO CITY, (Reuters) – The Mexican division of German automobilemaker Volkswagen (DE:), will increase the production of one of its segments at a central Puebla plant that makes the Jetta model. This was revealed in a labor union contract on Tuesday.

The industry now faces an unprecedented shortage of semiconductors after producers switched to cell phones, laptops and games in the wake of the pandemic.

Volkswagen Mexico has not yet responded to our request for comment.

General Motors (NYSE :), Volkswagen, and Ford all had their operations suspended several times in the past year.

The United States and Mexico created a joint working group to study the supply chain of semiconductor producers in September to improve their functioning and decrease the vulnerability of the region to shortages.
