[서울=뉴시스] Reporter Kim Ji-hyun = Minister of Employment and Labor Lee Jung-sik evaluated the fact that the unions of Seoul Transportation Corporation and Korea Railroad Corporation withdrew their strikes consecutively on the 2nd as a “reasonable labor movement.”

Minister Lee said on his Facebook page that day, “Following yesterday’s Seoul subway, the railway labor and management also agreed early this morning,” and “I thank the labor and management for doing their best to the end without letting go of the dialogue.”

He said, “It is extremely important to create a win-win labor-management relationship through rational labor movements, especially in the public domain responsible for the feet and logistics of the people.”

He emphasized, “It is unsustainable because we cannot find a fundamental alternative to take the people hostage without dialogue and compromise and only focus on annual struggles, and in the end, it will only add to the difficulties of workers.”

Minister Lee said, “I sincerely hope that the labor and management of the Seoul subway and railroad will be able to continue the labor-management relationship trusted by the public through this agreement.” We respect and will actively support solving this problem.”

Previously, the union withdrew the strike after negotiating overnight with the Korea Railroad Corporation (KORAIL), and reached an agreement on wages and collective bargaining early this morning. The union of the Seoul Transportation Corporation also withdrew its general strike in one day after reaching an agreement on collective bargaining with the management on the 30th of last month.
