The ANSWER Coalition encourages its members and supporters to take action in support of Seoul Metro Line 9 workers in South Korea. Below is an update and social media campaign from the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU).
Frustrated with inhumane and unsafe working conditions, Seoul Metro Line 9 workers went on strike, calling on the French company RATP Dev Transdev to make this so-called 'Hell Line' into a safe line. Instead of listening to workers demands, however, management has brought in poorly trained strike breakers leading to delays and further threatening passenger safety.
