Last Sunday (19 Sep), Mothership published a 独家专访 aka exclusive interview with National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) Secretary-General Ng Chee Meng.
In the interview, the Labour Chief spoke of the issues and challenges faced by the professionals, managers and executives (PMEs), especially amongst the older ones He also shared how NTUC can help PME workers when they face discrimination at work, or unfair treatment.
Other than the PME workers, Ng also touched on the things NTUC can do to help workers who have been laid off, particularly after a devastating global pandemic.
He believes that NTUC can help local workers, especially those who may be feeling anxious about competing with workers from foreign countries by preparing them and constantly keeping them at the forefront of our industries in order to compete internationally.
Secondly, PMEs who are part of a labour movement can also help to scrutinise the “small numbers of unfair companies”, whose actions bring down the remaining 99%of companies who treat their workers fairly.
Lastly, NTUC will do its part to maintain Singapore’s reputation as a place with strong institutions, a superb investment climate and an innovative environment to attract investors and create jobs, he said.
Netizens react to Ng Chee Meng’s call for PMEs to join the NTUC
Don’t know is it because he is from the ruling party or because now The Online Netizen kena closed down liao and netizens got nowhere to vent their anger and frustration so they all flocked to Mothership, but the post attracted A LOT of hate.
