[labor news] Aviation workers demand to overhaul regulations on minimum operational service
▲ Airline pilots with other participants shout slogans to call for an overhaul on the requirement of a minimum operational service in the aviation industry in a rally organized by the Aviation & Airport Workplace Labor Representatives Council of the Korean Public Service and Transport Workers' Union(KPTU) in front of the National Assembly on September 17. (Jeong Ki-hoon/The Labor Today)

An issue has been raised that the requirement of a minimum operational service which effectively prohibits the employees from striking violates basic labor rights and results in promoting a big social issue of 'gapjil' or superior power-abuse behaviors by private aviation conglomerates. It is argued that the designation of an essential service and the minimum operational service requirement in the airport and aviation industry should be revised to comply with the standards defined by the International Labor Organization(ILO).

The Aviation & Airport Workplace Labor Representatives Council of the Korean Public Service and Transport Workers' Union(KPTU) organized an outdoor resolution rally in front of the National Assembly on September 17 to call for "the repeal of the legislative restrictions on the aviation workers' right to strike which only promotes gapjil or superior power-abuse behaviors of aviation conglomerates". The Aviation & Airport Workplace Labor Representatives Council comprises labor unions of 37 workplaces including the Korean Air Flight Crew Union, Asiana Pilot Union(APU), Korea Airports Corporation Labor Union, Sharp Aviation K Labor Union with a total membership of 11,000 unionized workers.
