Violation of workers’ rights in Korea - general strike of 30 November

30 November 2016
Workers in Korea are facing difficult times. The rampant violation of trade union rights by the government include reprisals, dismissals and even the incarceration of trade union leaders and members. PSI, its affiliates, and other global union federations have been working throughout the year on many solidarity actions and campaigns to support them.

Korea General Strike

Once again, we appeal for your solidarity and support of the general strike of 30 November.

In order to support Korean workers you can:

  • Send a protest letter to the government and/or the Korean embassy in your home countries;
  • Organize a protest at the Korean embassies in your home countries;
  • Take a solidarity selfie of you and/or members of your union, using the hashtags #KoreanStrike4Justice and #KoreaGeneralStrike

Please see the links below for a sample letter and the solidarity signs for the selfies.

We thank you for your support. A demonstration took place in Geneva on 30 November. More details here.
