Hong Kong Container Terminal Strike Update
Dock-worker unions at strike-bound Kwai Chung container port to meet with two contractors under Labour Deptartment's mediation.
The breakthrough comes as a strike by workers at the port threatens to enter a third week; however, port operator Hongkong International Terminals, says it will only sit in on the meetings, according to a report on the RTHK News web site.
First the unions organising the strike, led by the pro-democracy Confederation of Trade Unions, will meet two contractors in the morning, with HIT sitting in attendance.
Then, in the afternoon, unions which are not in dispute with the employers, led by the pro-Beijing Federation of Trade Unions and the Federation of Labour Unions, will meet the employers' side.
