Hong Kong (RAE - China) - Protesting security guards sacked despite promises (2010)

In June, around 60-70 guards working at the Link Management Company, a property firm which bought public estates from government, were sacked after they went on strike to protest against changes in working hours and salary cuts that could have led to the dismissal of half the workforce. The dispute lasted several months. Despite promises from management not to dismiss guards during the dispute, the company proceeded with laying off guards and hiring a subcontractor to provide other guards. An agreement was finally reached in July.
