Hongkong Post staff stage protest against disability discrimination at work

24 Aug 2017 Ferado

Hong Kong’s postal authority has been ­accused of failing to properly handle discrimination against workers with disabilities, with one union saying that cases of name-calling, forced resignation and unfair treatment were only the tip of the iceberg.
Victims claimed complaints made to the management of Hongkong Post had been brushed aside and attributed to misunderstandings and communication errors, and said they intended to bring the matter before the­ equality watchdog and the Ombudsman.

About 10 workers and representatives of the Rights Association of Hongkong Post Contract Staff staged a demonstration outside the General Post Office in Central on Thursday morning.

They said the issue had become more serious since former postmaster general Jessie Ting Yip Yin-mei stepped down in March to become right-hand woman to the city’s leader, Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor.
