Registration and nomination invited for Labour Advisory Board Election of Employee Representatives
     The Labour Department (LD) is inviting employee unions registered under the Trade Unions Ordinance (TUO) to register as electors, appoint authorised representatives to vote and nominate candidates for the 2023-2024 Labour Advisory Board (LAB) Election of Employee Representatives.

     "Registration as electors, appointment of authorised representatives and nomination of candidates start today (September 19) and will close on October 11, 2022 (Tuesday)," a spokesman for the LD said.

     The LAB is a tripartite consultative body comprising representatives of employees and employers to advise the Commissioner for Labour on labour matters. The current term of the LAB will end on December 31 this year. An election of five employee representatives to the LAB for its next two-year tenure, ending December 31, 2024, will be held at Mei Foo Community Hall, 1/F, Mei Foo Government Complex, on November 12 (Saturday) this year. Authorised representatives may cast their votes at that polling station between 9am and 5pm.

     Employee unions that have registered as electors in LAB elections held in 2006 or thereafter need not re-register as electors but have to submit forms to appoint authorised representatives in order to vote in the election.

     "We have sent out today related forms and copies of the rules and procedures for the election to all employee unions registered under TUO," the spokesman said.

     Meanwhile, the LD has invited five employer associations to each nominate one representative to sit for the next tenure of the LAB as employer representatives. These associations are the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce, the Chinese Manufacturers' Association of Hong Kong, the Employers' Federation of Hong Kong, the Federation of Hong Kong Industries, and the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce.

     Enquiries on matters relating to the above election can be made at 2852 4024.
