Labour chief urges workers to continue to treat each other with respect

Labour chief Lim Swee Say has urged workers to continue to treat each other with mutual respect, saying the riot on Sunday is an isolated incident. 

Mr Lim was speaking on the sidelines of the Labour Movement, NTUC's 'U Care for Community' event. 

He said that a Labour Movement network called community workplace engagement programme was activated yesterday to reach out to branches and companies to ensure that the incident remains an isolated incident. 

"Some of our unionised companies, the management working together with the unions, they conduct briefing for all the workers in the companies, whether they are locals or foreign workers. Basically call upon them to reinforce the message that the action of a small group does not reflect that of a majority."

He also said that peace and harmony at workplace should be treasured and not take it for granted. 

He noted that the all these years local and foreign workers have been working in harmony and that must continue. 

And the Labour movement will help by continue strengthening relationships at the workplace.
