Hyundai Motor Co. Ltd. workers vote in favor of joining a strike to protest a proposed 5-day work week by the South Korean government. Of Hyundai’s 34,000 unionized workers, 78% voted in favor of joining the strike by an umbrella union group, the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU). The KCTU objects to the government’s plan to cut the work week from 44 hours to 40 next year because they believe it will lead to a reduction in wages and holidays.
