Korea: Oracle workers on strike

In partnership with the UNI Global Union, represents more than 20 million workers from over 900 trade unions in the fastest growing sectors in the world - skills and services.

Workers at IT software giant Oracle have been on strike since May 16 after negotiations for a first collective bargaining agreement with the company broke down. The Oracle Korea Workers Union was formed in October 2017 primarily as a response to unfair and non-transparent salary and compensation systems. The average working hours at Oracle Korea are about 80-100 hours per week, yet most workers have seen no wage increase over the last 10 years. The company also unfairly dismissed about 100 workers in 2017, and has failed to recognize full time union officials. Oracle is one of the world's largest software companies and made more than $9 billion in profits in fiscal year 2017. Larry Ellison, the co-founder and now executive chairman of Oracle, is the eighth-richest person in the world. Call on Oracle Korea management to immediately engage in good faith negotiations with the Oracle Korea Workers Union and to end the exploitation of the workers who make the company so successful.
