NTUC appoints four new Assistant Secretaries General

The Labour Movement has apppointed four new Assistant Secretaries General to drive its plans. 

They're Mr Patrick Tay, Mr Yeo Guat Kwang, Mr Ang Hin Kee and Mr Zainal Sapari. 

Mr Zainal will look into low wage workers and NTUC's care and share programme. 

Mr Ang Hin Kee will oversee freelancers and the self employed. 

Mr Tay's portfolio will be issues relating to Professionals, Managers and Executives or PMEs and legal services; and, Mr Yeo will look into migrant worker issues and outreach efforts to small and medium enterprises. 

Their appointments take effect on the 1st of February. 

NTUC Secretary General Lim Swee Says says their appointments will strengthen the leadership team at NTUC. 

They'll help mobilise the ground towards making every worker a better worker, and every job a better job for the benefit of all. 

"On the whole, I would say that the stage is now set. Now the NTUC secretariat team has been further strengthened. We're going to charge ahead under the overall leadership of the central committee. Hopefully, come 2015, we'll have a good report card, not so much from the viewpoint of the NTUC, but rather a good report card from the viewpoint of the workers, the unions, the union members."

At the NTUC Ordinary Delegates' Conference held in October last year, union delegates charted key priorities for 2015 and beyond. 

These include sustaining broad-based real wage increases by making the Progressive Wage Model more prevalent and improving the jobs, wages and progression paths of low-wage workers.
