<Anchor> After

the courier who was appealing to the dealership took his own life, I suffered a similar incident, and other courier drivers sent a lot of reports saying that there was more tyranny of the agency.

Reporter Je Hee-won heard.


A courier driver received a one-sided notification from the agency that he would raise the fee even though the contract period is still available.

[Seongdong-gu, Seoul: You have to sign up for industrial accident insurance, pay association fees, and there is a lot of extra cost while operating an agency.]

When asked what the association fee is, he said this answer came back.

[Seongdong-gu, Seoul, delivery engineer: He said he didn't need to know and didn't answer.

(And so)'Don't regret later.'

In this way, pressure, not pressure…

.] In

Daejeon, a family of a courier worker suffered from habitual insults and assaults by the agent manager, tried to make extreme choices, and told the story of a younger brother who is now receiving hospital treatment.

[Assault victim courier sister: for no reason (struck)'It's XX.'

'Because you work like that, you're doing a courier job.' How badly a person was treated that he even thought of dying...

.] In

health surveys such as musculoskeletal disorders, some workers said that the agency wrote it down as'no problem' due to implicit force.

[Gyeonggi-do Uijeongbu delivery engineer: I have to write it down as a lie.

I have to pay because I wrote that it doesn't hurt even if it hurts

If it hurts, the (agent stock price) is removed from the zone.]

This'gap-jil' is because the income of the courier and the annual renewal of the contract are entirely in the hands of the agent.

In fact, the large courier companies that are the owners are letting go of their hands, saying they are not parties to the contract.

[Jung Byeong-wook/Attorney: It can be seen that it is actually a courier company that manages, directs, and uses courier workers.

In the end, the courier companies have to take responsibility for this problem.] As

long as the structure of taking responsibility for the agency continues, it is difficult for courier workers who are privately-


businesses to escape from the swamp.
