Migrant Workers' Centre assures workers injured in rig accident of assistance

The Migrant Workers' Centre (MWC) has assured workers injured in Monday's rig accident at Jurong Shipyard that they'll get the assistance they'll need. 

It said in a statement on Tuesday that it's confident that their employer will do all that's necessary to see to their needs in this critical time. 

MWC said it's in touch with the manpower ministry on the provision of assistance. 

Eighty-nine workers were injured in the accident on Monday morning, when a jack-up rig that was being constructed tilted to one side. 

MWC was set up in 2009 by the National Trades Union Congress and the Singapore National Employers Federation to improve the welfare of migrant workers in Singapore.
