Pyongyang, August 24 (KCNA) — South Korea’s confederation of trade unions on August 18 brought to the international labour organization a complaint against the “government for the people” which has suppressed trade unions, a radio report from Seoul said.
The South Korean authorities accepted a list of workers to be fired under the lay-off system, submitted by the management of Hyun Dai Motor Company. Included in the list were over 400 leading unionists.
The confederation said the “government’s” acceptance is not only crackdown upon the workers’ struggle for vital rights but also encroachment on their freedom of association and disruption of trade unions.
