Hyundai Motor Rejects Revised Gwangju Type Job Project Proposal

‘광주형 일자리’ 수정 의결… 현대차 “받아들이기 힘들어”

Hyundai Motor Rejects Revised Gwangju Type Job Project Proposal

 

The City of Gwangju has met a dead end going between the local labor circle and Hyundai Motor Co.

Yeongju Ahn will tell us more on the latest updates on the project.

 

The Gwangju Type Job Model Project proceeded by Gwangju City and Hyundai Motor to establish and operate a car plant in the city is close to its collapse after the carmaker refused to accept the final draft concluded by the City of Gwangju and the Federation of Korean Trade Unions or FKTU Gwangju office.

 

The announcement came hours after the City and representatives of labor groups reached a final draft for the project. Hyundai Motor said in a statement yesterday that the draft was unacceptable in terms of investment feasibility and it was very regretful about the city creating confusion by flip-flopping on its promises in prior negotiations.

 

Meanwhile, before reaching the final draft, Gwangju City and the FKTU, disagreed over an article of a preliminary version, which stated employees at the plant could not engage in collective wage negotiations until the plant was able to produce an accumulated 350,000 vehicles because it was interpreted as the plant's employees not being able to hold wage negotiations for the five years, given Hyundai Motor guaranteed producing 70,000 vehicles annually at the plant.

 

After arguing throughout Wednesday, the City of Gwangju and the FKTU agreed on a condition that Hyundai Motor accepts one of three revisions to the article, all of which failed to mention 350,000 vehicles. However, Hyundai Motor said it could not accept any of the revisions.

 

With Hyundai Motors questioning the trustworthiness of the City as a negotiating partner, talks came to be suspended a day before a scheduled signing ceremony supposed to be held today, casting uncertainty over the 700 billion won Gwangju Type Job Model projects future. However, Gwangju City Vice Mayor Lee Byung Hoon said the City will begin working-level negotiations from next week again, to reflect the related budget in the governments preliminary expenses of 2019.
