Unionized workers of South Korea's third-largest carmaker Kia Motors Crop. will hold a partial strike next week in a protest against wages, local media reported Friday.

Kia, an affiliate of Hyundai Motor Co., is disgruntled with the wage proposal from the management, claiming the Kia workers deserve same incentives the Hyundai workers receive under the strike-free wage agreement reached last year, local media said.

The management has offered incentives, a 300-percent bonus and a one-time payout of about 4,000 U.S. dollars, in exchange for a wage freeze in 2010, but the union has dismissed the proposal, according to local media.

The unionized workers will hold partial strikes for four hours a day starting next Monday.
