Railway Worker Walkout Ends, KTX Operations Resume to Normal

Unionized railway workers ended their no-time-limit strike Monday following a five-day walkout, as they reached a deal with the management over a pay raise and better working conditions.

After marathon talks, the labor union and the Korea Railroad Corp. (KORAIL), the operator of train services, struck an agreement to withdraw a work stoppage that started Wednesday.

As of 9 a.m., the striking workers had returned to work.

Bullet train KTX operations and other services nationwide will be put on the normal track starting today, but it will take one or two days for the full-scale normalization.
