CJ Logistics agents and couriers have been demanding an official apology from CJ Logistics, which recently killed three people in three months.
They held a rally at the headquarters of CJ Logistics on Nov. 12 and pointed out, "It has already been two weeks since the Ministry of Employment and Labor ordered the entire workplace to suspend operations, but CJ Logistics has not shown fundamental solutions to prevent safety accidents."
In the past three months, CJ Logistics experienced three fatalities in Daejeon and Chungcheong areas alone. A 23-year-old college student who was cleaning under the conveyor belt at Daejeon Logistics Center in August died of an electric shock. A 54-year-old subcontract employee, who was working at the Okcheon Terminal in the same month, collapsed during work and was killed.
In October, a 33-year-old man at the Daejeon Logistics Center was serously injured when he failed to avoid a reversing trailer while working. He was taken to the hospital but eventually died a day later.
The Daejeon Regional Labor Office issued an order on Oct. 30 to stop all work at the Daejeon Logistics Center.
"Owners of agents and couriers are suffering from direct damages. They should not say that CJ Logistics' headquarters are difficult. No one at CJ Logistics feels responsible for the accidents," said an official at the delivery service agent association.
