S. Korean Regime Slammed for Suppressing Trade Union's Strike
Pyongyang, December 15 (KCNA) -- The south Korean newspaper Kyunghyang Daily News on Dec. 10 carried an article titled "Regime regarding trade union's strike as illegal without condition".

The article said that the regime and the management filed a suit against and indicted 194 persons including the chairman of the Railways Trade Union and relieved more than 6,000 unionists of their jobs, labeling the union's strike illegal.

This is little short of threatening that they will crack down on the strike of the workers, it charged. It condemned the authorities for labeling any strike of the trade union illegal with no reason.

The workers staged the strike in protest against the privatization of railways, it held, adding the authorities should abandon the wrong understanding that strike is entirely illegal.
