Work Plan

Promoting Organizing & Decent Work for Youth

By Eun Mi AHN (S. KOREA)

ITC-ILO/ACTRAV Training Course A3-00850

(02/07 – 29/07/2007, Turin + Tokyo)


Promoting organizing decent work for youth

Background & Justification

  • Decreasing number of newborns is a growing problem in Korea. Other than that, youth also face unemployment issue. The Youth un-employment in Korea is a structural problem that has persisted since the Korean financial crisis.

  • Since 2000, the youth unemployment rate in Korea has been averag-ing around 8% and latest official record in 2006 stands at 7.6%. Despite government efforts to tackle youth unemployment, there is currently no sign of improvement.

  • According to the Attitude Survey conducted by the FKTU Research Center among 615 students last March. 76.5% of the students answ-ered in the affirmative on the necessity of trade union, and 69.9% agreed with need for collective action. But few were aware of labor right, nor were they given any instruction on it. In reality, part-time workers do not tend to take any legal actions even if their wages are below minimum wage, or when they are discriminated.


Promoting organizing decent work for youth

Background & Justification(contd)

  • Furthermore, youth have no ways to communicate their opinions and pressure or lobby to the government and no means of access to information on labor and TU.

  • There has been no effort to tackle youth employment in FKTU although youth employment is related to promoting organizing.

  • TU can make better working condition through the collective bargaining and prevent young worker from leaving their jobs.

  • Thus, this project is being proposed to promote decent work and trade unionism among Korean young workers.
