Hyundai Motor’s union wants a 7.84% boost in base pay

The labor union of Hyundai Motor has demanded a monthly base-pay hike.

In a meeting in Ulsan, the leadership of the union decided to request the company raise employees’ monthly base pay by 159,900 won ($145.82), a 7.84 percent rise. It also demanded the company officially hire all workers currently on contracts.

About 48,000 workers are members of the union.

The union also said the previous 8+9 hour, double-shift system should be changed to an 8+8 hour system within the year and Saturdays should be designated as paid holidays. Representatives of the union will review the details and approve the proposal by Thursday.
