Here’s hoping Cuepacs leadership and its members turn up in solidarity. MTUC was with you when you asked for your wage increase and COLA. Now it’s your turn to support MTUC and private sector workers (us!)

One will find it hard to recall the last time a survey or study here has been withdrawn, as in the case of ASLI/CPPS, more so when the research team stands firmly behind it.
