FKTU holds the Annual National Congress of 2013.

- Resolving Labour Issues through 'Engagement and Counterbalance'

combined with 'Negotiation and Struggle' -

 

 

 

 

The Annual National Congress of the Federation of Korean Trade Unions (FKTU) was held in Seoul on 27th February and FKTU's action plan as well as the budget for the year 2013 were adopted.   

According to the decision, it was determined to pursue key objectives; △ Revision of the Trade Union and Labour Relations Adjustment Act (TULRAA), △Promotion of Social Dialogue and Reinforcement of the Tripartite Commission, △ Alleviation of Social Polarization and Promotion of Job Security, △ Enhancement of organization's competitiveness in the era of union pluralism, △ Improvement of Participation in Social Solidarity and Enlargement of FKTU's Role △Full Implementation of FKTU Future Strategies 2045, on the basis of strategic combinations of 'Engagement and Counterbalance' as well as 'Negotiation and Struggle' as key principles of its actions for 2013.

 

MOON Jinkook, the FKTU President, emphasized the unity in his opening speech by saying, "It is the ethos of the FKTU to be more hardened and united as situation gets more difficult, then to overcome crises together. We must be united in order to resolve tremendously important tasks before us such as the revision of the TULRAA, the reduction of working hours, the abolition of any discrimination against non-regular workers, the increase of the national minimum wage to a realist level, the improvement of job security."

 

He continued to say, "the FKTU will consistently endeavour to rectify irrational and wrong provisions and labour administrative practices having been enforced at workplace while we are adhering to our main objective of revising the TULRAA". Then he pointed out to the government and employers "the government and employers should clearly appreciate that improving inadequate labour laws and institutions is essentially crucial for the harmonization between labour and management as well as the creation of desirable industrial relations. Therefore they must be cooperative".

 

Then he urged the government to talk with the labour by saying, "With the power of unity, the FKTU is ready to talk with the Park Geun-hye administration but we are also capable of struggle to resolve labour issues. It is time for the government to initiate sincere social dialogue with the labour including the FKTU, as a key stakeholder, in respect of the implementation of economic democratization, labour and social welfare policies"

The FKTU has demanded the medium and long term stabilization of industrial relations and the social dialogue to discuss its main labour agenda such as the non-regular employment, the insufficiency of the national minimum wage, long working hours, the increase of job insecurity, the revision of the TURLAA. Mr. Moon Jinkook reaffirmed FKTU's readiness for social dialogue and then emphasized the importance of communication with the labour in order to resolve those labour issues, which was an essential prerequisite to achieve economic democratization, labour market reforms and social cohesion.

 

In relation to the controversy over the abolition of the standing committee on environmental and labour in the national assembly, he strongly opposed this attempt by saying, "without labour, the pledge of the new government for economic democratization is obviously false. Even for this single reason, the committee should exist." Then he asked leaders of the ruling and the opposition parties who attended to congratulate on the congress to prevent the abolition.

 

The congress adopted a resolution on

- All-out struggles to eradicate any discrimination, to reduce income inequality and to achieve successful collective bargaining in 2013,

- All-out struggles to restore the fundamental workers' rights and to regain the hope of workers through the revision of TULRAA,

- All-out struggles to achieve FKTU's 5 key objectives which are the abolition of the non-regular employment, the extension of retirement age, the reduction of working hours, the increase of the national minimum wage to the realistic level,

- Reforms at all-level of the trade union movement to strengthen organizations' capacity in the era of union pluralism and to fortify the foundation for the independent and democratic trade union movement.
