Posted by temasektimes on July 22, 2012
With Singaporean PMETs facing intense competition from cheaper foreigners in the job market, Singapore’s only legal trade union NTUC is currently working with employers to provide more meaningful job opportunities for members who are mature professionals, managers and executives (PMEs).
At its U Live Symposium on Sunday, NTUC offered 15 PME job openings including middle management positions which pay at least S$2,000 per month each.
Speaking to queries from the media, President of the National Trades Union Congress, Diana Chia said:
“They are also part of our rank and file workers, and this is an important aspect for people to realise — that we are all moving up in our career, and we are all going up for higher education, to ensure that we find purpose and a career for us to move on.”
An increasing number of PMETs are finding hard to get decent jobs due to competition from foreign PMETs who are allowed to find work in Singapore with few restrictions.
