SAO PAULO Jan 16 (Reuters) - Workers at a Volkswagen AG factory in Brazil voted on Friday to end a 10-day strike after the carmaker agreed to reverse the layoff of 800 employees and present a new labor deal through 2019, according to union representatives.

The local metalworkers union said production would resume on Monday at the plant on the outskirts of Sao Paulo. A VW spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (Reporting by Brad Haynes and Alberto Alerigi Jr.; Editing by Jeffrey Benkoe)
