Samsung has officially declared it has officially completed its negotiations with victims over the compensation, on ways to make an apology and preventive measures, though some of the victims disagree.
Three main agenda items of the debate are;
1. Facts over the scale of leukemia and other occupational illness incidence.
2. Disputes over negotiations and claims of reaching an agreement.
3. How to deal with leukemia victims in the future
English interpretation will be provided along with tea and snacks. $1 for AAJA members or those who have attended a fee-paying AAJA event in 2016. For others, $15 if registered online or 20,000 won at door.
RSVP is a must as we expect a large number of people to attend the event as it will be the first time for Samsung officials to discuss the contentious leukemia issues with victims in front of journalists.
