News About Korail Strike

In the last weeks we received comments, emails and questions about the strike of rail workers union in Korea. Some readers seemed disappointed that we didn’t cover this story. Primarily other obligations didn’t leave any time for a detailed analysis. And second, even though the strike was about the operation of a new railway in Korea, this issue was deeply-embedded in the current political atmosphere and I don’t have enough knowledge to grasp this complex field. Still I don’t want to leave this topic out and thus, I collected the most important news articles in order that everybody, who is interested in this topic, can do research easily with this post.
