Union urges govt to give priority to local workers

A group of local construction workers, accompanied by lawmaker-cum-unionist Ella Lei Cheng I, yesterday urged the Labour Affairs Bureau (DSAL) to ensure that local workers will always be given priority over non-locals.

Briefing reporters after a closed-door meeting with DSAL Director Wong Chi Hong at the bureau, Lei said that during the meeting the union reported a number of cases where local workers were given a shorter contract duration than non-locals, and thus became unemployed sooner than the non-locals.

The Labour Relations Law states that a company can hire non-local workers only if local workers are unable or unwilling to do the job.
