"Singapore playing to win," says Lim Swee Say.

Union chief wants workforce to be “cheaper”

Singapore's labour movement is playing to win and the next two years will not be any less challenging.

That is the view of the labour movement's chief, Lim Swee Say, who has called on workers and employers to play their part in making the economy and workforce cheaper, better and faster. He was speaking at a 3-day ordinary delegates conference.

The challenges facing Singapore's labour movement are varied as the battle against the global recession is still on.
