Eight days after launching collective action including rolling strikes at the Millennium Seoul Hilton, the union (a member of the IUF-affiliated KFSU) signed an agreement on October 23 which meets key demands. Signed just before the launch of a third strike, the agreement brings a 5% wage increase, improved benefits and allowances, and the recruitment of 13 permanent workers to replace those scheduled to retire this year. This ends the practice of replacing retirees with casual workers or outsourcing their positions.

The union continues its efforts to gradually roll back precarious work and rebuild permanent jobs.
