Victory for MTU!

This just came in over the wires and over my cell phone from a friend at the MTU:
Court allows illegal aliens right to form union SEOUL, Jan. 31 (Yonhap) -- A Seoul court on Thursday ruled in favor of foreign workers seeking to join a trade union despite their illegal status from overstaying visas.

In the first official recognition of the right of illegal migrants to association, the Seoul High Court dismissed a lower court ruling that said illegal migrant workers are not eligible to form a labor union.
