The dock strike at Hong Kong International Terminals has entered its 26th day.
The Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions (HKCTU) and Union of Hong Kong Dockers (UHKD) has issued the following appeal:
The dock workers’ strike has come to a critical moment. Although HIT still does not negotiate, we believe that the external support has gotten media attention and the government seems more willing to intervene as it is sensitive to its global image. International support also gives huge moral support to the workers who are fighting against the ruthless exploitation of the biggest corporation in Asia. If possible, we hope you can organize a protest or petition to any Hutchison Whampoa-owned or invested businesses and send us pictures of the action, to shame Hutchison and to give a strong message of international solidarity to the strikers.
Please direct all inquiries and correspondence to the organizer of Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions Ms. Sally Choi by firstname.lastname@example.org
