A union representing tens of thousands of workers at Samsung Electronics in South Korea said Wednesday it would launch an "indefinite general strike" in a bid to force management to negotiate.

"We declare a second indefinite general strike from Wednesday, after learning that the management has no willingness to talk after the first general strike," the National Samsung Electronics Union said in a statement. Employees had begun a three-day work stoppage Monday.
