SOUTH KOREA: KCTU leaders resign after ranks revolt
BY SUE BOLTON

The leaders of the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU) resigned en
masse on April 3, in response to heavy criticism of their decision to call
off general strike in solidarity with striking power workers on the day it
was due to begin - April 2. A date for the election of new leaders has yet
to be decided.

The April 2 general strike had originally been called to express solidarity
with more than 5000 power workers who had been on strike for almost six
weeks in protest against plans by South Korean President Kim Dae-Jung's
government to privatise public utilities.

There was massive confusion when the KCTU leadership called off the general
strike because tens of thousands of workers had already begun the strike, or
were preparing to join it.
