Hyundai Heavy’s union votes to strike after 40 rounds
Hyundai Heavy Industries’ labor union, which has been in talks with the company over wage issues, agreed to walk off the job yesterday for the first time in 20 years as common ground continued to elude the two sides after 40 rounds of negotiations.
The union asked its 17,906 members whether they should go out on a strike and 55.9 percent, or 10,011 members, voted yes.
But the union said it would not immediately strike as it still wants to negotiate with the company. The two sides will have their 41st negotiation today.
