The Federation of Korean Trade Unions(FKTU) and Korean Confederation of Trade Unions(KCTU), two umbrella trade union organizations in Korea, are committed to the solidarity struggle for the reduction of working hours and the improvement of the minimum wage system.

On the morning of Jan.12, Kim Myung-hwan, newly elected president of the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions(KCTU) paid a courtesy call on Kim Ju-young, president of the Federation of Korean Trade Unions(FKTU) at the FKTU headquarters in Yeouido District of Seoul.

They agreed to discuss the detailed measures later on as regards the joint participation in the social dialogue in the future, taking into account the situation that KCTU this time will not be able to participate in the tripartite(labor-employers-government) representatives' meeting slated for Jan. 24, due to its overlapping internal schedule.

Two national center union chiefs promised "to work closely to resolve (the pending labor issues)" in a friendly atmosphere throughout the meeting. Kim Kyoung-ja, first vice-president and Baek Seok-gyun, general secretary from KCTU, and Park Dae-su, standing vice-president and Lee Sung-gyung, general secretary from FKTU were also present at the two top union leaders' talk.
