He says the Labour Movement (including unions, union leaders, NTUC’s network of social enterprises etc) wants to partner with educators, companies, business leaders, institutes of higher learning and government to tackle these concerns and struggles.
Some solutions are:
unions and union leaders to connect workers to future opportunities
Labour Movement to develop more modular bite-sized training options (with NTUC LearningHub, e2i and institutes of higher learning)
NTUC social enterprises to continue offering value for money
employers to redesign jobs, build a culture of learning at workplaces
employers must support workers in training
employers to make businesses more inclusive, e.g. towards mature workers
government to change the way we teach and learn
all to work together to make this real
Let’s see how they can make this real for all working Singaporeans, because having the Labour Movement as our voice and advocate is one thing, but getting the others to buck up and play ball is another.
