Prosecutors have wrapped up their six-month investigation into the collapse of Samsung Electronics Service’s labor union. A total of 32 people, including 13 former and incumbent executives of Samsung Group, were put on trial.

The Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office said on Sept. 27 that it arrested four former Samsung Electronics executives in charge of labor affairs and indicted 28 others without detention, including Chairman Lee Sang-hoon of Samsung Electronics board of directors.

"In order to carry out the policy of "no-union management" since the beginning of the company, the personnel management team of the group's Future Strategy Office has spearheaded the plan to collapse the labor union. In particular, Samsung Electronics and Samsung Electronics Service mapped out a concrete master plan to carry out it systematically,” the prosecution said.

According to the prosecution's investigation, Samsung Group was found to have been involved in the shutdown of its subcontractors, obstruction of reemployment of labor union members, and individual interviews under the pretext of Samsung management and wage cut, citing the union's activities.

In addition, it was found that it delayed or rejected collective bargaining and even inspected the assets of its members in cooperation with Korea Employers Federation.

The document, written by the Samsung Group's Future Strategy Office, states that it is difficult to disintegrate labor union once the union is formed, so that advanced prevention is the best way.
