On November 30, newly unionised workers of the Seoul Metro line began a strike against their employer, RATP Dev Transdev. Workers are fighting against the company’s attempts to cut workers’ conditions and its union busting attempts by bringing in scab labour. In another dispute, tens of thousands of building workers staged a mass rally and demonstration outside the South Korean Parliament. They were demanding that the government pass legislation to guarantee the right to form and join a union as well as a substantial increase to their living retirement allowance.
