All-out Struggle for Repeal of Evil Labor Law Declared in S. Korea
Pyongyang, November 18 (KCNA) -- The south Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU) held a rally in Ryoju, Kyonggi Province, on November 12 with representatives of trade unions of at least 2,500 work places affiliated to KCTU attending.

Speakers at the rally denounced the authorities for contemplating enacting an evil law banning the payment of wages to the full-time trade union leaders, adding that this is a move to hold in check the trade union activities and stamp out the labor movement.

They also held that the moves of the "government" and the business management side to make a retrogressive revision of "the law on part-time job" would only result in further expanding the part-time job.

The "government" should halt at once the retrogressive revision of the above-said law, they urged.

A resolution read out at the rally declared that KCTU would launch an all-out struggle including a general strike to check the passage of the evil labor law through the "National Assembly".
