The Korean NCP received a request for review from a trade union alleging that a Korean subsidiary of Nestlé, a Swiss-owned multinational enterprise, had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in Korea. 

The Swiss NCP supported the Korean NCP in this specific instance and acted as a mediator between the trade union, the enterprise and the Korean NCP. The specific instance was concluded by mutual consent between the parties in November 2003.
