RSM labor union members to strike over wage negotiationsRenault Samsung Motors’ labor union has made a resolution to strike after struggling to negotiate workers’ wages with management.
The union said over the weekend that 90.7 percent of its members have agreed to a strike after a voting session held Wednesday to Friday. As a result, RSM’s union is the first in the Korean auto industry to approve industrial action this year.
The union claimed that management hasn’t followed an agreement made last year and has forced employees to agree to voluntary retirement. It has also accused the company of outsourcing jobs without notification.
The exact date of the strike hasn’t been scheduled yet, but the union said it will decide on a day after negotiating with management today.
