11 august 09 - melbourne unionists rally in defense of ssangyong workers - korea trade centre
Ssangyong car workers went on strike on 21 May.
On 6 August agreement was reached between Ssangyong Motors management and the KMWU Ssangyong Motors Branch.
However the strike ended after repeated extremely violent police and company security guard attacks. Many unionists are in hospital. Many are in jail and more are facing charges. The Korean Metal Workers Union, the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions, the International Metalworkers Federation and the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union are asking all unionists for continued solidarity.
Come to this meeting to hear about the dispute, support the campaign to free jailed unionists and help to develop our strategy for international industrial action and solidarity against capitalist attacks.
