Webzen union vote for strike
The union launched a strike authorization vote after Webzen proposed a 10% increase on average for salary in 2022. After failing to agree with the wage bargaining in December 2021, the union rejected the firm's proposal and demanded 10 million won (about 8,200 USD) salary increase for all employees. The union argued that the firm's proposal focusing on the "average" would only benefit some employees. The vote turnout was 92.78%, and it was passed by two-thirds of the majority. This is the first case in the Korean game industry that started the strike process. The union planned to strike on May 2nd, 2022.
