Samsung Electronics in South Korea refuses to pay compensation

The anti worker and anti union activities of Samsung in South Korea over the years have been well documented, but just this week, the company once again blocked families’ attempts to claim compensation. Due to the relentless opposition by the company, some families of dead and injured workers have split from the main compensation groups as they are desperate for some closure. While Samsung has stated that it is prepared to pay some compensation, it will not apologise and will not undertake workplace changes in its factories in order to prevent further deaths and injuries.
