SLW on container terminal labour dispute

     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Labour and Welfare, Mr Matthew Cheung Kin-chung, on the container terminal labour dispute today (April 15):

Reporter: (About the industrial action.)

Secretary for Labour and Welfare: I am very pleased to say that through our hard work and conciliation efforts, we are now able to reconvene meetings tomorrow involving three unions in two separate sessions. I am pretty optimistic that, provided all sides take part in the negotiation in a pragmatic manner, in a rational manner, through rational dialogue, all differences can be resolved and ironed out at the end of the day. I am optimistic that at the end of the day this dispute will be resolved.
