On the afternoon of the 17th, the Seoul Branch of the Horseman Managers’ Union (Chief Bo-hyun Kim) announced that it had held a workshop for the executive department to win wage and collective bargaining at the Jeju Racecourse Welfare Center.
The branch announced that the executives of the Seoul and Jeju branch and the Pukyong Horse Park branch of the Public Transport Union had gathered on the same day to share the progress and current issues of the collective bargaining agreement and set up a struggle plan.
Executive department officials urged the recovery of the horse racing prize money, recruitment of manpower, and measures to reduce industrial accidents, and the collective bargaining agreement decided to demand it as a priority. In particular, the branch said, “As horse racing was suspended due to the spread of Corona 19 and switched to win-win horse racing, the prize money for horse racing last year was drastically cut, and a cut is likely this year rather than recovery. We are only looking at the prize money, so the working conditions for horseman managers are getting worse,” he emphasized.
