Union of delivery workers go on indefinite strike after talks on working conditions break down Updated: 2021-06-09 13:19:47 KST

South Korea's unionized delivery workers have launched an indefinite strike after talks broke down with the government and logistics companies over what the union says are poor working conditions.
The strike was voted on after a meeting Tuesday about when the companies will fully implement a deal struck in January under which they would hire more workers to sort parcels.
It's common for delivery drivers to have to sort parcels themselves for no extra pay.
In the talks, the logistics companies wanted that deal pushed back a year.
The three sides will be meeting again, but for now, it's not known when they'll go back to work.
