【罷工無罪 打壓無理】跨工會聯合聲明:強烈譴責醫院管理局及OK便利店打壓工會 Inter-Union Statement: Strong Condemnation of the Hospital Authority and Circle K Store for their Suppression of Trade Unions
近日,醫院管理局及擁有香港OK便利店經營權的利亞零售有限公司分別以不同手段打壓參與工會及合法工業行動之員工,跨工會對此深表憤怒,現發起以下聯署聲明:

2月初,超過8,000名醫護人員參與醫管局員工陣線發起的罷工行動,明確要求特區政府全面封關,禁止所有旅客經中國大陸入境,以防武漢肺炎病毒在社區層面大規模散播;同時要求醫管局提供足夠防疫裝備予前線醫護人員,確保其工作環境安全,並承諾不會「秋後算帳」懲罰參與罷工之醫護人員。惟醫管局拒絕回應醫護訴求,更於2月26日去信曾參與罷工之醫護人員,將其合法的工業行動扭曲為「缺勤」,更恐嚇員工「會考慮跟進行動」。

另一方面,一名受聘於利亞零售有限公司,擔任OK便利店後勤文職的僱員從上年11月至今年2月先後兩次在參與罷工後遭上司延長試用期。該員工遂尋求香港白領(行政及文職)同行工會協助,隨即於工會正式發信介入事件後翌日,即2月13日被公司即時無理解僱,明顯有針對工會及打壓員工參與工會之嫌。雖然工會已向該公司發信要求解釋並撤回解僱決定,卻一直未獲正面回應。

跨工會強烈譴責醫管局及利亞零售有限公司打壓員工之行為。《基本法》第二十七條訂明: 「香港居民享有言論、新聞、出版的自由,結社、集會、遊行、示威的自由,組織和參加工會、罷工的權利和自由。」僱員參與工會和工業行動,乃《基本法》所賦予的權利。醫管局及利亞零售有限公司「秋後算帳」的行徑,無疑嚴重違反《基本法》,更可能已觸犯《僱傭條例》中「防止歧視職工會」及「不合法解僱」的條文。

跨工會在此提出以下要求:

1. 醫管局立即停止所有對曾參與或支持罷工之醫護人員的恐嚇及懲處行為;
2. 醫管局必須立即公開承諾永不對曾參與或支持罷工之醫護人員「秋後算帳」;
3. 利亞零售有限公司必須立即撤回對該文職人員的解僱決定,並依照原來合約聘任事主為正式員工。

我們懇請全港市民一同聯署,抵抗上述打壓工會成員及罷工的行徑,並一同聲援當事僱員。同時,我們呼籲市民捐款支持「武漢肺炎防疫抗爭基金」,為參與防疫抗爭的集體行動而遭秋後算帳的僱員提供經濟或法律上的援助,讓同路人在抗爭路上無懼打壓。

Recently, the Hospital Authority and Convenience Retail Asia Limited (which owns Circle K Stores in Hong Kong) used different means to suppress employees who participated in trade unions and legal industrial actions. The Inter-Union Platform expresses indignation over such suppression, and issues the following petition statement:

In early February, over 8,000 medical workers joined a strike organized by the Hospital Authority Employees Alliance (HAEA). They explicitly demanded the HKSAR Government close all border crossings with China by prohibiting non-HK citizens’ entry in order to prevent the spread of the Wuhan Coronavirus in the community. They also demanded the Hospital Authority provide sufficient protective gear to frontline medical workers, ensure the safety of their working environment, and promise not to punish those who joined the strike. However, the Hospital Authority rejected the demands made by medical workers. On February 26, the Hospital Authority even sent an email to some of the workers who had joined the strike, falsely treating workers’ legal industrial action as “absence from duty,” and threatening to “consider follow up action”.

Meanwhile, the probation of a backup clerk of Circle K Store, who was employed by Convenience Retail Asia Limited, was extended twice after the employee participated in two strikes from November 2019 to February 2019. The employee sought help from the Hong Kong White Collar (Administration and Clerical) Connect Union, which then issued a letter to the company asking for an explanation. On February 13, the day after the Union issued the letter, the employee was instantly dismissed without proper reasons. The company is obviously suspicious of discriminating against the Union and the employee participating in the Union. Although the Union has already sent a letter asking for the company’s explanation and withdrawal of the dismissal, the company has not yet provided an appropriate response.

The Inter-Union Platform strongly condemns the Hospital Authority’s and Convenience Retail Asia Limited’s suppressive actions. Article 27 of the Basic Law states: "Hong Kong residents shall have freedom of speech, of the press and of publication; freedom of association, of assembly, of procession and of demonstration; and the right and freedom to form and join trade unions, and to strike". Employees’ participation in trade unions and industrial actions is, therefore, a right guaranteed by the Basic Law. The “punishments” imposed by the Hospital Authority and Convenience Retail Asia Limited has undoubtedly violated the Basic Law, and might have even violated statutes under the Employment Ordinance regarding "Protection against Anti-union Discrimination" and "Unreasonable and Unlawful Dismissal".

The Inter-Union Platform demands the following:

1. The Hospital Authority must immediately stop all punishments and threats against medical workers who had joined or supported the strike;

2. The Hospital Authority must immediately and openly promise that it will never punish medical workers who had joined or supported the strike;

3. Convenience Retail Asia Limited must immediately withdraw the dismissal of the aforementioned employee and must hire the employee as regular staff according to the original contract.

We sincerely call for Hong Kong citizens to sign the petition in order to resist the aforementioned suppressive actions and support workers facing the suppression. At the same time, we would like to ask for a donation to the Defence Fund to Support Protection against Wuhan Coronavirus Epidemic. The Fund is established to support workers who would face punishment after participating in strikes or protests regarding the Wuhan Coronavirus Epidemic.
