GM Korea union to continue to strike over wagesUnionized workers at GM Korea said Wednesday that they will continue their partial strike this week for higher wages despite the company's statement that it may reconsider planned investments in its plants.
GM Korea's daytime and night-duty workers will stage a four-hour strike from Wednesday to Friday, while continuing to refuse to work overtime during the week and on the weekend, union spokesman Cho Ha-soo said over the phone.
The daytime and night workers already held two rounds of partial strikes for four working days during the Oct. 30 to Nov. 10 period at the No. 2 Bupyeong plant in Incheon.
The union's decision to extend the strikes comes after the company said last week that it will reconsider investing in the main Bupyeong plant for the production of a next-generation vehicle for exports if the union continues to strike and affect production.
