Let's talk more with reporter Jae Hee-won, who has been covering the strike.
Q. What is the atmosphere of the cargo solidarity?
[Reporter Jae Hee-won: I met a tank truck driver who participated in the strike for the first time.
Yesterday (7th), he said that he was guarding the strike site because a safe fare system was essential for long-time work and safety.
However, after the expansion of the business start order today, he sighed that he was worried about what to do, saying, "The power has fallen."
This strike of the cargo union is characterized by high participation of non-union members.
The union also judges that the effect of blockade is diminishing as many of them have already returned to the field due to government pressure.]
Q. What is the background of government pressure?
[Reporter Jae Hee-won: Before the strike, the government and the ruling party proposed a three-year extension of the safe freight system to the cargo union.
However, after the start of the strike, the government even mentioned the abolition of the safe fare system, and now it is sticking to an unconditional return.
As the damage to the industry continues to grow, this is the biggest reason why logistics should be normalized as soon as possible, and the will of the President's Office to emphasize laws and principles is working strongly.
We will end the union's customary strike, and we will create an opportunity to correct it without being dragged into the union now at the beginning of the regime.]
Q. What is the future direction of the strike?
[Reporter Jae Hee-won: The cargo union is in the position that at least there must be dialogue so that the union can think about an exit strategy.
Above all, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, which should mediate and coordinate, criticized the union for treating it as a criminal.
First of all, the cargo union has filed an administrative lawsuit with the court to cancel the order to start work, and is asking the International Labor Organization and the United Nations to intervene.
In response to the government's hardline response, the cargo union has no choice but to endure to the end or raise the flag, so if the two sides continue to take a hard line, the possibility of a prolonged confrontation cannot be ruled out.]
