Unionized workers at Gwangju Christian Hospital reached a deal on Thursday with the management and will return to work.

The management has agreed to pay unpaid ordinary wages, establish night shift wages, increase payment for special divisions, provide permanent positions to irregular workers and improve work uniforms.


Also, the management consented not to press charges against the union officials.


A union official said the agreement will now provide grounds for workers to receive what their work is worth and expressed regret for inconveniences citizens had to experience during the strike.


Choi Yong Soo, head of the hospital said he was sorry for putting discomfort on patients, families and citizens and pledged to work with the union to re-earn trust and affection from the people.
