The 3rd anniversary memorial committee for the late Kim Yong-gyun, a young irregular worker, announced on the 1st that it would hold a slogan ‘not to die while working, not to be discriminated against’, and to start a memorial project for the late Kim Yong-gyun from the 6th to the 10th. On December 10, 2018, Kim Yong-gyun, an irregular worker at the power plant, got caught in a conveyor belt at the Taean Thermal Power Plant and died. The memorial committee was composed of 165 labor, civil, social and religious organizations, including the KCTU and the Solidarity for Participation.
On the 6th, the memorial committee will hold a press conference to declare the 3rd anniversary of the late Kim Yong-gyun in seven places across the country, including in front of the Blue House. On the 7th, a memorial service will be held in front of the Taean Thermal Power Plant. On the 8th, a press conference was held in front of the Supreme Court to urge Korea Western Power, Korea Advanced Institute of Technology, and subcontractors to be punished. On the 7th and 8th, a photo exhibition will be held at Gwanghwamun Plaza and the 3rd floor of the National Assembly Building in Seoul. On the 9th, a report on the implementation of the special task force, Yong-gyun Kim, will be held. On the morning of the 10th, the day of the 3rd anniversary, a memorial service will be held at Maseok Peony Park. In the evening, they plan to hold a memorial resolution meeting in front of the Seoul Regional Employment and Labor Office and march to Cheonggye Plaza.
The memorial committee said, “Even if there are any barriers, we will gather together with the power of solidarity, remembering the pain of Kim Yong-gyun and ‘Kim Yong-gyun’.” “We will work for the safety and rights of all working people,” he said.
The memorial committee has decided to convert non-regular workers at power plants to regular workers, △pay appropriate labor costs and abolish the successful bid rate, △ensure employment through ‘pre-employment-after-training’, △recruit sufficient workforce for safety and health, △stop outsourcing of risks and guarantee the right to stop work. are demanding
