Hong Kong Post staff stage protest against disability discrimination at work
Workers claim management brushed aside complaints; they say will bring issue before equality watchdog and Ombudsman
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.
