Corea, República de - Workers locked out after two day strike (2010)

On 11 August, Kumho Tires, the second largest tire manufacturer, imposed lockouts and barred workers access to three of its plants nationwide in response to strikes against the company’s downsizing plan. The unionists started the strike on 9 August over plans to dismiss over 18% of the workforce. They complained that they had agreed to wage freezes and an effective wage cut two years ago whereas the company insisted on further cuts. The unionists and management started a 20th session of negotiations, but failed to reach an agreement.
