Support Ssangyong workers

Solidarity with Ssangyong Motors occupation




Workers have been occupying the Ssangyong Pyeongtaek factory for 60 days in protest against mass sackings.

The company and government have responded by using violent police attacks, blockading the site and stopping food deliveries. The police even arrested doctors who are trying to provide medical assistance to injured workers.

The Korean Council of Trade Unions has called a general strike against the police attack on the striking workers.

The Korean Metal Workers Union is asking all unionists for solidarity messages and solidarity actions.

The international labour movement demands that the Korean government call off riot police and water cannons immediately and to stop using violence to resolve industrial disputes.
