Subway Strike Seems Imminent This Wednesday

The Busan Metro Labor Union has held a press conference yesterday to announce their strike starting this Wednesday.

The labor and management sides are still torn on core negotiation points, such as the number of new hires and the wage increase rate.

The labor union estimates that the number of runs for the Metro will fall to about 62% of the normal rate once the strike starts.

As Busan Metro is a necessary public service, designated personnel of some 1,010 employees must work even during a strike.

The Busan Transportation Corporation has convened an emergency response team to make preparations ahead of the strike and to allocate all human resources to minimize operational setbacks.

It would be the first subway strike in two years in the city.
