The Ministry of Employment and Labor held the 2018 tripartite new year meeting at the Post Tower in Jung-gu, Seoul on the afternoon of January 5th, 2018.

More than 300 people, including Employment and Labor Minister Kim Young-joo, FKTU president Kim Ju-young, KEF vice chairman Kim Young-bae, Korea Business Women Federation president Park Chan-jae, Korean Women Entrepreneurs Association chairwoman Han Moo-kyung, chairman of the Association of High Potential Enterprises of Korea Kang Ho-gap, chairman of the National Assembly's Environment and Labor Committee Hong Young-pyo and other tripartite representatives, heads of related organizations and institutions and academics, attended the meeting to exchange new year's greetings with one another.


Minister Kim said, "I wish Korea to become a society that respects labor and is centered on people in the year 2018."


She went on to say, "I ask labor unions, business circles and people from all walks of life to join forces to ensure that employment and labor policies can spread across workplaces and thus produce visible outcomes."


Meanwhile, she said, "Now that the two umbrella unions' leadership reshuffle has been completed with the election of new KCTU officials late last year, it is hoped that the tripartite partners at the Economic and Social Development Commission will resume their social dialogue and reach a social agreement that meets the nation's expectations, so that they can wisely resolve pending labor issues."
