|Two legal experts have teamed up to publish an English/Korean legal guide on how to organize a labor union, launch collective bargaining, action and settlement in South Korea, detailed with cases they have handled.
They are Jung Bong-soo (labor attorney and Ph.D. in law) and Park Sang-yung (attorney). Their collective 223-page brainchild, titled "Labor Union Manual," recently hit the shelves.
Jung, in particular, has ample experience handing cases involving foreign-invested companies and foreigners. In 2009, he contributed to establishing the nation's first labor union for native English teachers.
"This manual focuses on how to organize and run a labor union and was written largely based on first-hand field experiences and data," Jung said. "I hope this book will help the reader ― Korean and foreigner alike ― set up sound, win-win relations between management and labor."
The book costs 30,000 won.
