SDP launched its 4Y1N GE campaign in response to Covid19

The Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) launched its General Elections (GE) campaign on 28 April 2020. The Covid19 pandemic has changed Singapore's politico-socio-economic landscape, so the SDP has drawn up 5 focus points to deal with these changes in the immediate and long-terms. These points are covered under their "Four Yes, One No" (4Y1N) campaign.

FOREIGN COMPANIES HIRING THEIR FELLOW COUNTRYMEN WHILE LOCALS SIDELINED

They have successfully coerced a few into an unfair package of 2 weeks for every year of service when the law states that those who have worked for 2 years are entitled to a month's remuneration for every subsequent year of service upon retrenchment. When those colleagues contacted MOM, MOM said they cannot do anything (even though its in the law) as foreign companies have the ultimate right to decide their own affairs which got us pondering, then what's the use of MOM for?

To my horror, I learned from other friends my age group that they too are still facing uncertainty in their present employment at various F&B as they are employed at contract based and 1 of my friends who have been working for the last 3 years has not even been confirmed yet! While Singaporean staffs are employed at these outlets for $1500/-, most of our Malaysian counterparts and Filipinos are hired at least $1800/- and more as most of them are supervisors and managers lording over us!

54 S'PORE JOBS TERMINATED WITHOUT DUE PROCESS: WHY ONLY SAY NOW?

Will Singaporean workers at large get to know what exactly will be the outcome later, so that we may know what to expect in the future? Will any of the 54 employees be getting some retrenchment benefits, as letting go 54 employees in one go may arguably, be akin to or in a sense be like a retrenchment?

DID ST GET SURBANA EMPLOYEE NUMBERS WRONG, OR IS SURBANA BEING EVASIVE?

I refer to the article “Surbana CEO defends axing ‘poor performers’” (Straits Times, Jan 19). It states that “”We cannot allow our 1 per cent of poor performers to continue to affect the rest of the 99 per cent of staff who are performing.”

UNISIM GRADUATE RETRENCHED 3 TIMES SINCE 2009, HOW DO I SURVIVE IN S'PORE?

I graduated in 2009 from UniSIM. Since then, I have been in 3 different jobs, each lasting about 1 year plus to 2 years. Each job ended in retrenchment, and now my resume looks horrible. Every interviewer asks why I do not stay long in the company, asks why every previous job retrenched me. My current job I took it desperately because I was out of job for 5 months (not long compared to others in your website). This is a totally new job scope different from my previous jobs.

MOM: RETRENCHMENT IN S'PORE - HIGHEST IN 7 YEARS

In the first nine months of 2016, 13,730 workers were laid off, higher than the same period in 2015 (10,220) and the highest since 2009 (21,210). However, re-entry rates have risen. More residents (49%) made redundant in the second quarter of 2016 secured re-employment by September 2016, an increase from the previous quarter (45%), after a general downtrend since December 2014 (59%).

SPH STAFF HAD TO FIND OUT ABT RETRENCHMENT FRM YAHOO - THE IRONY!

I am writing on behalf of my dad who is a staff of SPH.

And whom have not been sleeping well since he found out from Yahoo! about the impending retrenchment. How ironic! SPH prides itself as a reliable news source, yet its staff had to wait weeks to find out the news from other sources.
