SOUTH KOREA: Threats of deregistration of KTU (08 October 2013)

Education International (EI) calls on all its members to request the authorities of South Korea not to cancel the registration of the Korean Teachers and Education Workers’ Union (KTU/Korea) and to amend its labour rights legislation in line with the ILO recommendations. In a one-month ultimatum sent to the KTU in September, the Korean government threatened to deregister the teacher union if it does not amend its by-laws to ban dismissed and retired teachers from its membership. The KTU will be deregistered unless it revises the provision in its by-laws by 23 October 2013.
