The union said today that 53% of more than 41,000 unionised workers voted to approve the deal that the union leaders and the company hashed out last week.
The approval ends the first strike in four years at Hyundai, which resulted in 1.4 billion US dollars of lost output according to the company's estimate.
The union staged walkouts that totalled 92 hours in July and August, pressuring the company to eliminate night-time shifts during annual negotiations on wages and working conditions.
