FKTU to Return to Social Dialogue
The FKTU decided to return to the Committee for Labor Market Reform of Economic and Social Development Commission(ESDC) in its 58th session of the Central Executive Committee Meeting on 26 August.
President KIM Dong-man made it clear, "we will never accept the easier dismissals and unfavorable change of employment rules. We will demand the government to set up a special committee within the ESDC to discuss the wage peak system. We will also make every effort to resolve the pending issues faced by industrial affiliates including the improvement of the special sector exempted from the current working-hour regulations and the obligatory employment of regular workers in hazardous work".
On the other hand, the president of the FKTU highlighted, "the withdrawal of the sit-in does not mean that our struggle is losing strength. We will launch a new start within the framework of the ESDC", encouraging the secretariat for the 47-day sit-in.
