South Korea’s delivery workers have called off a planned strike next week after reaching a final agreement with their employers on better working conditions.
The agreement was mediated by the transport ministry, and stipulates that logistics companies themselves, not the drivers, are the ones responsible for sorting parcels, which means they have to pay extra if the drivers have to do it.
In their complaint, the drivers said parcel-sorting had them overworked.
The deal also requires companies to hire more workers to eliminate the need for deliveries after 9 PM, and it limits work to 60 hours a week.
Last year, 19 delivery workers died from what was reported to be overwork.
