Seoul Metro Unions to Strike Tuesday

The two major labor unions of Seoul Metro, which operates subway lines one to four in the capital Seoul, are set to launch a strike from Tuesday, causing concerns of public inconvenience.

Their planned action is part of a general strike scheduled for Tuesday by unionized rail workers opposed to the introduction of a performance-based wage system.

The trade union of the Seoul Metropolitan Rapid Transit Corporation, which operates subway lines five to eight, also held a vote among its members on whether to join the strike, and is currently tallying the results.

Residents in the greater capital region, including Incheon and Seongnam cities, are expected to be the most affected by the subway workers' walkout due to disruptions in metro operations.
