Migrant workers in South Korea finally win full recognition

Recently we reported that the Migrant Trade Union (MTU) in South Korea had won legal recognition following a decade of struggle and a Supreme Court decision. This victory was immediately curtailed by the South Korean ministry of Labour which imposed legal hurdles preventing registration of the MTU. Labour activists then initiated a campaign for full recognition and better rights. This week, the MTU finally won, bringing to end a struggle that began a decade ago.
