The Korea Post has reached an agreement with its labor union to end the ongoing strike by its delivery workers over their working conditions.
Under the deal, starting January 1st, Korea Post delivery workers will no longer have to sort the parcels they deliver, which they say is not part of the work they're paid for and adds to an already exhausting workload.
The Korea Post union had continued to strike after other logistics workers in the country reached a deal with their employers on Wednesday.
