Global Network Asia: AMRC follows up outcome of Asian Round Table on Social Security
November 30, 1999
The 3rd Asian Regional Round Table on Social Security (AROSS) was organised in Chiang Mai, Thailand, on 24-25 August 2011 with the support of the Global Network member Asia Monitor Resource Center (AMRC). During the AROSS, the progress made in social assistance and minimum wage legislation and implementation was reviewed. Participants also formulated the goals and action plans for the future, recognising the magnitude and the significance of the task ahead. As a follow up of the AROSS and to monitor the implementation of National Social Insurance Law which has been effective in China from 1 July, 2011, AMRC and 10 mainland Chinese NGOs conducted a questionaire survey among the population of the Pearl River Delta and the Yangtze River Delta. 1000 questionnaires were successfully collected and a survey report by AMRC will follow in April. The next meeting of AROSS is in 2013 and will be most likely held in Philippines.

Global Network Asia: HKCTU and AMRC supporting the striking dockers of Hong Kong port
November 30, 1999
On March 28, 2013, the Union of Hong Kong Dockers (UHKD), an affiliate of HKCTU, staged a strike at Hong Kong Container Terminal No. 6 in Kwai Chung to demand an overdue pay raise and an end to their exploitation. Over 400 are still on strike today, demanding besides a wage increase also respect for their labour rights. The wages of the dock workers, who are mostly hired by the sub-contractors, have not risen in the past fifteen years. The workers are also facing health and safety risks daily, working extremely long shifts and not being given meals and toilet breaks.
