Rally Held in S. Korea against U.S. Forces’ Action to Dismiss Workers

Pyongyang, June 6 (KCNA) — At least 3,000 workers hired by a unit of the U.S. forces in south Korea held a rally in Ryongsan, Seoul on June 3 in protest against their action to dismiss local workers, according to the south Korean KBS.

At the rally its participants accused the U.S. forces present in south Korea of announcing last April a “plan for a personnel cut” in which they said at least 1,000 employees at the unit of the U.S. forces would be fired, an expression of their discontent with south Korea’s reduction of its share of the funds for their upkeep.

They demanded the U.S. forces withdraw the plan at once and reinstate the unemployed workers.

They threatened to call a general strike unless their demand is met.
