Airline Workers' Strike at Seoul Airport Ends

December 20, 1987|Associated Press

SEOUL, South Korea — Northwest Airlines said Saturday that management and union leaders reached agreement to end a labor dispute involving the airline's 120 Korean workers. The wildcat strike over pay and working conditions began Sept. 9 and caused a suspension of Northwest's 29 weekly flights to and from Seoul.

Flights resumed briefly in October after the airline raised wages but were halted again when management transferred key union members from the passenger section to the cargo department. Workers called it "a retaliatory action." The airline said it would be about a week before full flight service resumes.
