FKTU decides to stage anti-“government” struggle

Pyongyang, November 6 (KCNA) — The Federation of (South) Korean Trade Unions (FKTU) made a “local tour for seminar on the struggle to defend the right to existence in the second half of the year” in Pusan on November 4, according to a report.


At the seminar the FKTU put up such demands as deletion of the article of the evil labour law which stipulates that wages shall not be paid to the cadres of unions, cutdown of working hours, halt to the restructuring of public fields and the repeal of the measure to sell out the electrical companies to foreign businesses. It warned the “government” side that if it refuses to meet these demands, they will launch an “anti-government” struggle by holding workers rallies across South Korea on November 21.

It also stated that it, together with the South Korean Confederation of Trade Unions and other civic and social organizations, would stage big rallies and other solidarity struggles and call a nationwide general strike.
