Korea: Don’t let Han’s death be in vain

In Partnership with IndustriALL, which represents 50 million workers in 140 countries in the mining, energy and manufacturing sectors and is a new force in global solidarity taking up the fight for better working conditions and trade union rights around the world.

Friday 24 June marks 100 days since 41-year-old Han Kwang-ho, a union organizer at a Hyundai auto supplier in South Korea, took his own life.

Han, an elected official for a branch of the Korean Metal Workers’ Union, suffered five years of intimidation, repression and attacks in retaliation for his trade union activities at YooSung Enterprise, a key supplier for Hyundai Motor Company.

New evidence has revealed that Hyundai conspired with YooSung Enterprise and labour management-consulting firm, Changjo, to crush the union at the factory. Their extensive and aggressive anti-union campaign began in 2011 and continues to this day.

According to Korean unions, Hyundai has also led union busting at its other suppliers.

Demand #JusticeForHan and ask Hyundai Motor Company to STOP union busting at Hyundai suppliers.
