April 28

Actions organised by GP Cadmium Poisoning Coalition—Protest against GP poisoning their workers, both in HK and mainland China and called for fair compensation for workers, in front of big local retailers in busy shopping center in Causeway Bay in the HK island which sell GP batteries. The Coalition DID NOT intend to call for boycotting the GP product, but to inform consumers to be aware that the product they buy may not be produced in humane situation. The GP cadmium poisoning case is a good example to show that without labor groups’ and unions’ monitoring and freedom of association; violations of labor rights can be rampant.

April 30

HKCTU leader Lee Cheauk Yan petitioned and submitted the endorsed letter to CE Donald Tsang at the May Day Dinner, organized by the Labor Bureau, calling for the new term of government not to appoint GP’s CEO Mr. Victor Lo Chun-wing, a person lacking of integrity and corporate social responsibility, be the Executive Council member again. Our slogan is:
Donald Tsang must keep Victor Lo Chun-wing out of the Executive Council for the next term!
