Bonuses for senior managers have become a flashpoint in an escalating dispute with the powerful labour leaders of Europe's biggest carmaker, which is under pressure to cut costs since an emissions scandal broke in September when U.S. regulators said they were investigating VW for violating clean air rules. Volkswagen's (VW) second-largest shareholder, the German state of Lower Saxony, wants management bonuses to be scrapped while VW's powerful labour leaders have been pushing for no or lower bonuses, sources familiar with the matter said.
