Repeal of Plan for Privatizing Railway Called for in S. Korea
Pyongyang, February 6 (KCNA) -- The railway trade union under the south Korean Confederation of Trade Unions held a meeting in Seoul on Saturday, demanding the authorities to give up their plan for privatizing the railway.

The speakers said that the privatization would grant privileges to the big businesses and reduce tens of thousands of railway workers to part-time workers, threatening their existence.

They urged the authorities to drop their plan for privatizing the railway.
