13 April: Today the Korean Construction Workers’ Union (KCWU) affiliated to the Korean Federation of Construction Industry Trade Unions (KFCITU) held a rally demanding the government guarantee construction workers basic labor rights in front of Namdaemun on April 13th. Then they marched to join more than 20,000 at the main rally organized by its national center, the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU). The key demands of the main rally included ratify ILO core convention including conventions 87 and 98; amend Article 2 of the Labour Union Act; and guarantee specially-employed workers such as self-employed, contractor, and “misclassified” workers basic labor rights.” In addressing the protesters, KCTU Chairman Kim Myeong Hwan stated, “President Moon Jae-in promised to guarantee specially-employed workers basic labor rights even before he took office, but he has failed to do so after three years from in office and now he is attempting to eliminate the right to association for specially employed workers.  We call on President to keep his promise to workers in South Korea.” Lee Young Cheol, Chair of the Specially Employed Workers' Association and the Vice President of the KCWU added, "We must not forget the martyrs who sacrificed themselves for the rights of workers for the past two decades.  We will continue to fight and mobilize until the ILO General Assembly in June to ratify the ILO core convention and revise the labor union law. The specially employed workers, will take the lead in this important struggle." Following the rally, participants marched to the Presidential office Cheong Wa Dae. The BWI along with UNI and ITF sent letters to the South Korean government this week calling for the immediate ratification of the ILO core conventions to ensure basic labor rights. In the letter, BWI General Secretary Ambet Yuson urged President Moon Jae In to live up to his campaign promises to South Korean workers.  He stated, “This is the 100th anniversary of the ILO.  It would be only fitting that South Korea shows its commitment to abide by international standards by ratifying the core ILO conventions.” Read Story
