The first talks of the government’s cargo alliance collapsed… Second talk in 30 days
The government and the cargo union entered into the first negotiations today (28th) five days after the general strike, but as expected, they broke down.
There was too much difference of opinion on the safe fare system.
Under pressure from the government to start business, the two sides decided to meet again at Sejong Complex on the 30th to continue the negotiations.

A forum for dialogue prepared five days after the general strike by the cargo unions.
On the government side, Vice Minister Eo Myeong-so of the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs, Koo Heon-, logistics policy officer of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, and Kim Tae-young, senior vice chairman of the cargo union, present at the ceremony.
The two sides were suddenly confronted even before full negotiations began.
“First of all, there are things that the Vice Minister can decide.” “We want to hear the Vice Minister’s voice. We are.”
After that, the conversation between the two sides, which was held in private, ended without any results in about 1 hour and 50 minutes.
The government extended the safe fare system for three years and reaffirmed its position that it would be difficult to accept the expansion of items, while the cargo union demanded the withdrawal of the business start-up order, the sunsetting of the safe fare system, and r expanding items, so the conversation ran parallel. lost
However, both sides decided to hold a second discussion at the Sejong Government Complex on the 30th, leaving open the possibility of a dramatic agreement.
Meanwhile, as the damage to the industry continues to mount due to the cargo union strike, the government has raised the strike alert alert to ‘serious’.
‘Severe’ corresponds to the highest level in the ‘Emergency Response Manual for Land Freight’, and is the first time the alert level has been upgraded to ‘severe’.
The government explained that it was a measure to use all the government’s capabilities to reduce damage to the national economy.
