Public Forum by the Bay Area Transport Workers Solidarity Committee. In December 2013 over 4,000 Korean railway workers of KORAIL went on strike to stop privatization. The Park government suspended the railway workers and sough to arrest the leaders. They also used the military to raid the offices of the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions KCTU. On December 31, the KRWU railroad workers returned to work with a promise that there would be a government legislative investigation about the privatization of the public railways. At the same time the government continues to seek the arrest of the union leaders.
