Mayor Lee is participating in the delegate conference of the Federation of Korean Trade Union’s Gwangju regional office


Amid the conflict between the labor union and Gwangju city over the “Gwangju type job” project, public attention is on the possible communication between Mayor Lee and the labor union at the delegate conference of the Gwangju office of the Korea Labor Union.

HyungJin Ro reports

The Korean Confederation of Trade Unions’ (KCTU) Gwangju regional office, one of the nation’s two major umbrella unions, held a delegate conference to report on and hear the opinions of the New Year’s projects.

The meeting is seen as a critical turning point for Mayor Lee and Gwangju City, given that the KCTU's participation in the Economic, Social and Labor Council will get the City-led Gwangju type job project’s resolution of labor issues back on track.

The union previously urged Gwangju Global Motors to accept its 4 requirements; introducing a labor director system, dismissing the newly appointed director, forming a civic advisory committee, and adopting a ceiling system on wages for employees.

At the conference, the Headquarters Chairman Yoon Jong Hae (윤종해) remarked ‘there is a lack of trust’ since there was a visible change in attitude toward the labor proposal from the company.

Meanwhile, Mayor Lee called for the cooperation of the labor union with the Gwangju Global Motors project, referring to them as a “companion for co-prosperity”.

He also suggested cooperation measures, including the installation of the secretariat of the Labor and Government Council, and the establishment of a Labor and Human Rights Center. However, it is still uncertain if they can find a breakthrough in the mired conflict.
