Moving on to the news of the freighter strike.

A little while ago, the government and the Cargo Solidarity side met again and have been talking.

An unscheduled schedule was suddenly set, so let's connect the negotiating room to see if an agreement can be reached.

Reporter Han Sang-woo, after a long conversation over the weekend, things went wrong, but suddenly we were seated next to each other.

Is there any progress?


As a result of on-the-spot coverage, it was confirmed that progress was being made.

It seems that a proposal to extend the safe fare system by three years, which has been an issue, has come up on the negotiating table.

The government made the proposal first, and from around 6:40 pm, the Cargo Regiment had an internal discussion as to whether or not to accept this proposal.

And since the two sides met and resumed negotiations from about 8:00 a.m. just before, it seems that a full-fledged discussion will continue over the three-year extension of the safe fare system.

Also, as for the location, the Cargo Solidarity had visited the Government Complex in Sejong, but today (14th), government officials came directly to Anyang Container Base, where the Cargo Solidarity is on strike.

Also, around 12 noon, Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport Won Hee-ryong also visited this place and said that if the union continued to strike, they would have no choice but to make a major decision, but made a statement that seemed to change something.

Let's hear for yourself what he had to say.

[Won Hee-ryong / Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport: The door for dialogue is always open.

However, when the door for dialogue opens this time, we have to draw a conclusion.

It is possible now, and it is possible tonight.]


Many people are hoping for a resolution soon, but as the strike continues for the eighth day, the logistics situation is getting worse, right?


As I said, this is a container base.

Containers that are exported and imported from the metropolitan area gather here and leave.

Not only here, but also in ports around the country, import containers are piled up without being able to leave, and in some places, more than 90% of the space is full.

In addition, industrial fields such as steel, automobiles, construction, and cement have come to a standstill.

Even if it restarts, it will take a considerable amount of time to normalize, so a compromise is urgently needed.
