Unionised workers at GM Daewoo have rejected a wage deal that was agreed between the company and union leaders, according to reports today (27 July).
 
A Reuters report quoted a union official as saying workers had rejected a 3.98% rise in base salary. They have, however, remained on the job.

GM Daewoo and union leaders had agreed on the salary package on 21 July.

Unionised workers have so far held two strikes in July. They are after a 8.55% base salary rise and better working conditions.

As reported by just-auto yesterday, it has been a disrupted few weeks for the South Korean motor industry.

Hyundai Motor union members have stopped work for several hours almost every day since 26 June as they demand higher salaries and incentives.

Ssangyong Motor workers held a five-day partial strike last week. They resumed production on Monday, but some workers not directly involved in production are still holding out.
