Media unionists plan massive rally

2009/02/28 | 92 views | Permalink | Source

Media unionists have vowed to continue a general strike as the ruling camp is reportedly set to introduce media reform bills before a plenary session of the National Assembly.

The National Union of Media Workers said Saturday that it plans to hold a missive rally and candlelight vigil in Seoul for two days starting Monday to protest the ruling Grand National Party's move to revise media laws.

Union workers at Munwha Broadcasting Corporation, one of the three major terrestrial broadcasters, entered into a third day of general strike Saturday. The prolonged strike has caused glitches in some programs, leading to the replacement of main hosts and anchors.

Union members at Christian broadcaster, CBS, fully suspended production Friday reversing their initial decision to only partially join the media strike.

Meanwhile, union workers at KBS have refrained from taking an active part in the strike as the KBS union withdrew from the National Union of Media Workers last year. But KBS unionists say they plan to vote on whether to join the strike for two days next week amid concerns that the media reform bills are soon to be submitted in parliament.
