Next Friday(June 25) marks the 13th anniversary of the launch of the Jeju Tourism Organization. The JTO has recently recruited new employees however successful candidates are rejecting offers at the final stages of recruitment due to low wages and rare opportunity for promotion. To this the JTO is considering a massive restructuring plan and expects bumpy roads ahead. Mike Laidman reports. Report The Jeju Tourism Organization announced that eight new employees would be starting work. But some of the new hires have decided at the last minute not to sign contracts due to the low starting salary that was being offered. In fact, the wages at the JTO are the lowest among provincial-owned companies which include the JTO, the Jeju Provincial Development Corporation, and the Jeju Energy Corporation. The JTO’s starting salary had been lower than the living wage suggested by the province until as recently as this April. Management in the human resources department is also a serious issue. There have been no promotion opportunities over the last four years since the duty-free stores for travelers closed. This despite the fact that 70 percent of the company’s permanent employees meet the minimum time required for advancement to a higher position. The organization has lost its vitality in recent years, with a personnel congestion not leaving any room. More than 50 employees have left the JTO over the last five years. Job satisfaction has been on the decrease since 2016 when it was at 66.9 out of 100. It doesn’t help that the JTO’s plan for massive restructuring is making little progress. It has been in consultations with the province since last month. It's plan includes strengthening the organization’s management through its newly-appointed president, and by switching itself from an administrative organization to field-based one. The plan also includes wage increases for new employees, bringing them up to the average level of local public firms. However, the plan does not include any reduction in the number of employees, even though the provincial council has pointed out that the large organization often doesn’t put taxpayer money to good use. The JTO is hoping to conclude the consultations before its 13th anniversary on June 25th, but the future of the talks is looking dim. With governor Won Heeryong preparing to run for president, the province’s regular personnel changes will be made in early July, two months earlier than usual. This means that if the JTO fails to conclude its consultations with those currently in charge in the provincial office, its restructuring plans could drift for a long time. Mike Laidman, KCTV

  • Drug smuggler sentenced to 3 years in prison with 5 years probation
  • Drug smuggler sentenced to 3 years in prison with 5 years probation 31-year-old defendant Kim caught for smuggling drugs A 31-year-old defendant Kim, who was charged with smoking twice after smuggling narcotics such as heroin, cocaine, and hemp resin from overseas since November last year by airmail was sentenced 3 years in prison and 5 years on probation. During the sentencing, the court said that drug-related crimes need to be punished severely as they have a very negative impact on society. However, due to the fact that the defendant reflected on his actions, that this was his first legal offense, that he had difficulties adjusting to life in Korea after living abroad for many years, and that he suffered from depression from his inability to go back abroad due to the COVID 19 crisis and low risk of recidivism, the court came to this final decision. 4. 마약류 해외 밀수입·흡연 30대 집행유예 제주지방법원 제2형사부 장찬수 부장판사는 지난해 11월부터 해외에서 헤로인과 코카인, 대마수지 등의 마약류를 항공우편으로 밀수입한 후 두차례에 걸쳐 흡연한 혐의로 기소된 31살 김 모 피고인에게 징역 3년에 집행유예 5년을 선고했습니다. 재판부는 판결문에서 마약류 관련 범죄는 사회 전반에 미치는 부정적인 영향이 매우 커 처벌의 필요성이 크지만 반성하고 있고 초범인점, 오랜 외국생활 등으로 귀국 후 적응에 어려움을 겪던 중 코로나 사태로 다시 외국에 나갈 수 없게 되자 우울증과 스트레스를 겪은 점, 여러 정황상 유통 목적인 아니며 재범위험성도 낮아 이같이 선고한다고 판시했습니다.

  • Cafe at Seongpanak Trail Removed
  • The cafe building located at the entrance of (성판악) Seongpanak Trail has closed after 43 years of operation since 1978. According to the National Forest Management Act revised in 2009, leasing on national forest property is prohibited. Additional parking lots will be built on the site. Joseph Kim reports. Report This is the head of the (성판악) Seongpanak Trail on Hallasan Mountain. The building that had been used as a cafe for trekkers is being torn down by heavy duty vehicles. Materials in the building are being cleared away, and structures are being destroyed. The cafe has closed after 43 years of operation, since 1978. The cafe which sits on national forest property had been operated on a lease between the cafe owner and Jeju City. But the 2009 revision of the National Forest Management Act outlaws leases on national forest areas. The removal of the building was planned in 2012, but the cafe owner filed a lawsuit against Jeju City. The legal battle had delayed the removal for 10 years. Following the lengthy litigation, the Supreme Court concluded that the lessee should return the rented property to the nation. Jeju City is planning to build parking lots on the site once the building is completely cleared and the ownership rights are transferred to the nation. The city advises trekkers using the (성판악) Seongpanak Trail to bring their own water, food and hiking gear for the time being. Joseph Kim, KCTV

  • COVID testing referral system proving effective
  • COVID testing referral system proving effective 25% of new cases spotted by local doctors, pharmacists It has been confirmed that many patients abided by the referrals set forth by a system where doctors and pharmacists recommend COVID-19 tests to patients with suspicious symptoms. Since April 14, the province has issued an administrative order for people with suspicious symptoms to receive COVID-19 tests within 48 hours if referred by a doctor or a pharmacist. It has been confirmed that 119 patients, or about 25% of the cases that have been confirmed since the enforcement of the order, have visited hospitals and clinics. The province found this as an effective method in the early detection of people with symptoms of COVID-19. On the other hand, those who do not comply with this referral will be fined. So far no such cases of violation have been reported in the province. 2. 의사·약사 '진단검사 권고' 효과…불응 사례 없어 의사와 약사가 코로나19 유증상자가 있는 경우 진단검사를 권고하도록 한 제도와 관련해 확진자의 상당수가 권고에 따른 것으로 확인됐습니다. 제주도는 지난 4월 14일부터 코로나 의심증상이 나타나 의사 또는 약사 등으로부터 진단검사를 받도록 안내받은 경우 48시간 이내 진단검사를 받도록 행정명령을 발동했습니다. 발동 이후 지금까지 나온 확진자 475명 가운데 25%인 119명이 병.의원을 찾은 것으로 확인됐습니다. 제주도는 이를 통해 코로나 유증상자를 조기에 발견하는 데 큰 도움이 됐다고 평가했습니다. 한편 이 같은 권고에 불응할 경우 벌금이 부과되지만 아직까지 제주에서 이 같은 사례는 없는 것으로 나타났습니다.
