Posted by temasektimes on October 8, 2012
An Assistant Director of NTUC Amy Cheong is currently under investigation by the organization for making racist remark on her personal Facebook.
Cheong had initially ranted against Malays having their wedding at void decks.
Her comment sparked a massive outcry among netizens who lodged numerous complaints to NTUC, forcing it to respond.
In a comment on its Facebook, NTUC said it took the matter seriously and will address it in due course:
“Dear fans of NTUC Membership, we have been alerted of an inappropriate comment, allegedly made by one of our staff recently. This matter is being investigated and we will have a report in due course. This is a serious concern to all of us and will be addressed shortly. The Labour Movement centers on inclusivity and we will not accept words or action of any of our staff that is insensitive or offending to any community.”
Cheong has since apologized for her outburst, calling it a ‘bad judgement’ which she truly regretted and added it was in no way a reflection of NTUC and its work.
