On the 5th of this month, more than 300 “riders” who rode bicycles for bicycle races gathered in front of the main gate of the National Diet Main Gate in Seoul. All of them wore red vests with the words “Unity” and “Struggle”. They are members of the “Korean Bicycle Racers Labor Union” belonging to the Federation of Korean Trade Unions. I came to Thoujin Island by bicycle from near Tianyu Station on the Seoul subway, about 10 kilometers away, held a press conference, and rushed to the strike from this day asking for “life security” and “use of smartphones”. Of the 560 Korean bicycle racers, 380 are members of the union. Bicycle racing is a competition in which a bicycle rides around an indoor track to determine the ranking. At the end of March last year, the athletes submitted a notification of the establishment of a labor union to the Korean Ministry of Employment and Labor (equivalent to the Ministry), and at the end of October last year, they were officially approved as a labor union. Since March of this year, we have been conducting collective bargaining with the National Sports Promotion Corporation, which is in charge of bicycle races. However, the negotiations broke down at the end of May, and the mediation of the Central Labor Relations Commission that followed was also unsuccessful. The biggest reason why there was no compromise between the two sides was the basic salary. Athletes will receive a participation prize each time they participate in the competition, and will receive additional prize money depending on their performance. However, since the beginning of last year, the influence of the corona vortex has made it impossible to hold bicycle races, so they have almost lost their income. The union demanded that “athletes who have lost their income maintain their lives through home delivery, day labor, driving agency, etc.” and “I want you to pay a part of the prize money in the form of a monthly basic salary so that you can concentrate on the competition only.” ing.
