[2014-06-23] Gwangju Unionized Bus Drivers to Go On a Strike

광주 시내버스 협상 최종 결렬, 12년만에 파업

Gwangju Unionized Bus Drivers to Go On a Strike

 

Gwangju’s unionized bus drivers went on strike from 4 a.m. today as negotiations between the city of Gwangju and the bus drivers’ labor union   broke down

over the issue of wages yesterday.

Labor union members in Gwangju were requesting a 5.3 percent rise in wages, while the city of Gwangju offered a 3.6 percent raise.

Gwangju’s unionized bus drivers warned last week that they intended to go on a general strike and the city of Gwangju had been in the process of preparing

emergency transportation to minimize the inconvenience of public transportation users in the city.

Accordingly, the city will allocate a total of 677 buses as emergency vehicles, especially during rush hour, from 7am to 9am and from 6pm to 8pm.
