NTUC director Amy Cheong sacked for making racist remarks on Facebook
Posted by temasektimes on October 8, 2012
Ms Amy Cheong, the assistant director of the membership department has earlier posted offensive comments about an ethnic minority in Singapore on 7 October, sparking a massive outcry among netizens.
She was sacked the very next day by NTUC whose Secretary-General Lm Swee Say said in a statement that NTUC “takes a serious view on racial harmony in Singapore.”
He added the NTUC will not accept and has zero tolerance towards any words used or actions taken by its staff that are racially offensive.
NTUC has since ‘counselled’ Ms Cheong and impressed upon her the seriousness of her action. However the session did little to save her from the sack.
