This week, the FMC Korea Union announced a historic new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) with Fresenius FMC. The first of its kind, this agreement is set to improve Korean workers’ lives, guaranteeing union rights and better working conditions for FMC workers in South Korea. 

The new CBA provides a stable framework built on fair wages, benefits, occupational safety, health, and human rights at work including protection from harassment and gender equality. It also secures the right to organize by allowing union activists to exercise their union rights on “company time”.
