We have organized a series of collective workers compensation
claims for musculoskeletal disorders. With the experience in the
DAEWOO shipbuilding company, we extended our struggles to other
industries, such as food processing plant, railroad and subway
transportation companies in public sector and metal manufacturing
industry as well. The strategy of collective workers compensation
claims makes it possible for large numbers of workers in a factory
to walk our in a way of strike, and to organize daily struggles.
Through these struggles, we forced capitalists to hire more regular
workers and reduce the working hours.
Our aims were to alleviate the intensity of labor and build up
a workers¡¯ apparatus to intervene the hazards in work environment.
We struggle for workers¡¯ control over the workplaces and fight
against the Neo-liberal labor policy. We also presume the problems
of job strain and cardio-cerebral vascular disorders as the consequence
of the capitalistic globalization. Our struggle will continue
until the Neo-liberal globalization stops and workers take the
whole control over the workplace.
