KOREA::: Korean workers head into a bitter winter of struggles

As reported previously, workers in Korea are fighting on many fronts against union repression and for better wages and conditions. This year has seen many harsh disputes. The current fight against the privatisation of the railway system has already seen almost 7,000 workers suspended for taking action after only three days. There has been a massive show of support internationally with solidarity rallies in many countries, click here for Sydney rally photos. Meanwhile the Korean Women's Trade Union has held a second strike against wage discrimination and precarious work. source:::
