[앵커]The main KORAIL negotiations, which concerned personnel recruitment and high speed rail integration, eventually collapsed.

The rail union will start an indefinite general strike today from 9am, as well as the extensive bus connections between Gyeonggi and Goyang and Seoul today.

[기자]Korail Labor-Management in intensive last-minute negotiations before the general strike!

KORAIL sat with the union to prevent a general strike disaster.

[손병석 / 코레일 사장 : 저희들은 성의를 다해서 (교섭에 임할 생각이고요). 아직까지 확정적으로 파업에 들어간다고 단정하는 것은 좀 이른 것 같습니다.]

But after about an hour of negotiations, they did not find an agreement and eventually broke down.

The union demanded 4,000 employees and a 4% increase in salaries for implementing the 4th and 2nd changes.

In addition, KORAIL is struggling with a review of the recruitment of over 1,800 people, and the rest of the case is beyond recognition.

The railway association, which is aware of this situation, has called on the Ministry of Earth, Infrastructure and Energy to launch.

[조상수 / 전국철도노동조합 위원장 : 국토교통부는 이낙연 총리의 당부에도 불구하고 단 1명의 ‘4조 2교대’에 필요한 안전 인력 증원 안에 대한 인원을 제시하지 않았습니다.]

The KORAIL work and management plan continues negotiations after the collapse of the main negotiations.

However, a general strike is inevitable because it is unlikely to take full account of union demand.

During the strike, KTX handles 69% of normal trains, 60% of regular trains and 31% of freight trains.

In Gyeonggi-do, there are emergency transport facilities such as additional city buses and taxi signatures removed.

However, when the extensive trade unions that go to Goyang-si and Seoul are also on strike, overlapping train strikes will inevitably lead to transport and logistics problems.
