Hyundai union begins week of work stoppagesUnionized workers at Hyundai Motor will strike for parts of six days this week to demand higher wages and shorter working hours, union officials said yesterday.
Workers at Korea’s largest automaker will strike for two hours today and three hours tomorrow. They also plan to walk out for four hours on Friday, Monday and Tuesday, and two hours next Wednesday.
Hyundai’s unionized workers struck for four hours on July 13 and July 20.
“During the summer leave period, we failed to narrow differences on key issues such as pay raises,” said an official at the union.
“Our demands have not been met, so we decided to launch a partial strike.”
