Nexon – Korean gaming giant agrees wage hike for employees after labor union negotiations

After a tumultuous year for Nexon Korea which saw a major restructuring and employees going on strike over the company’s treatment, there is finally a piece of good news. Well, for the Nexon employees at least. The Korea Herald is reporting that “Nexon Korea set a precedent in the domestic gaming industry Monday by revealing the average 6.8 percent wage hike it agreed upon with the labor union, saying the disclosure would prompt a “constructive future.” This move had been spurred by Starting Point, Nexon’s own labor union. Netmarble and NCSoft, the other major game companies, do not have labor unions.
