Daewoo Shipbuilding workers stage protest, demand higher pay 

Workers of South Korean shipbuilder, Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) have embarked on a protest demanding pay increase.

Local media reported that two workers of the company’s metal union mounted a 40-meter tall crane and launched a sit-down strike. 

Talks between the shipbuilder and the metal union have been underway for over nine months but no progress has been achieved. 

The union has demanded a 4.11% wage rise on the back of improving business performance at DSME.

The company, however, is pushing for wage freezes and return of 10% of wages as part of its cost cutting measures.
