Crew members of Korea Train Express (KTX) and the Super Rapid Train (SRT) went on strike Wednesday, September 11, calling for a wage increase and direct employment by the state-run railway operator. The strike is scheduled to last through Monday, September 16. Though maintenance of minimum levels of train service is required, reduced services, delays, and cancelations are expected on KTX and SRT rail services across the country through Monday.
Individuals in South Korea are advised to monitor developments to the situation, confirm their train reservations, and anticipate delays, cancelations, and other service disruptions.
