Labor Unions of Gwangju Intra-city Bus To Launch General Strikes

 

Unionized intra-city bus drivers in Gwangju will reportedly go on a general strike from June 23rd as they failed to reach agreement with the corporations in meetings.

Gwangju Branch of the Korea National Labor Association has announced that it is requesting the corporations to raise wages for bus drivers in the city, as the local bus drivers’ wage growth is the lowest in the nation at 1.5 percent, worth 46,000 won.

Labor unions and management held meeting to discuss raising wages among bus drivers in Gwangju from May 15th for one month but could not find common ground.

Unionized bus drivers asked the corporation to raise the wage by 5.3 percent but management offered 1.5 percent increase.

Yesterday 92 percent of the laborers in Gwangju Bus Drivers’ Labor Union voted in favor of general strike set to take place from June 23rd.
