[아시아경제 박종일 기자] On the 16th, at 1:30 p.m. in front of the National Assembly in Yeouido, the National Time-Selective System Civil Service Workers’ Union (Chairman Jeong Seong-hye) held a press conference calling the Yoon Seok-yeol government to “require the right to choose working hours,” which the government promoted at the time of the introduction of the time-selective civil servant system. .

“On September 17, 2013, when the Park Geun-hye administration introduced the part-time system, the union leader Seong-hye Seong-hye said in a press release titled ‘A straight-forward part-time job, lead by example from the government. It was advertised as introducing a time-selective system for general civil servants, but the Civil Service Appointment Ordinance Act stipulates that ‘the appointment authority decides’, so the appointment authority can change the time at any time, reducing it to a bad job by force of time.”

In 2021, a part-time selective recruiting officer belonging to the Coast Guard Agency, Mr. A, raised three children from a single-parent family and was working in public service. When an employee who worked with him took a leave of absence, he requested a 35-hour week at the agency. Contrary to the purpose of the introduction of the system, there are many cases of abuse in the field, contrary to the purpose of the introduction of the system.

Kim Jin-sik, vice chairman of the union union, said, “In July 2022, the Yun Seok-yeol government announced that it would expand the ‘right to choose working hours’ in the 51st task of ‘building a win-win labor market through labor-management cooperation’ among the 120 national tasks. However, while there is no specific government action plan yet, the government is taking the initiative to enact the Civil Service Act or the Civil Service Appointment Ordinance Act to ‘set working hours in consultation between the appointment authority and the public official’ Content needs to be added.”
