Toyota Motor Corp. said Thursday it is negotiating with its workers in Japan to slash salaries as it stops production to adjust to slumping global demand.

She said talks are under way after the company decided this week to idle production at all 12 of its Japanese plants for 11 days over February and March — a stoppage of unprecedented scale for Toyota, the nation’s top automaker.
