Dock strike talks fail again
(04-12 13:20)

Dock workers and contractors have again failed to reach agreement during another round of talks over pay and working conditions.
The two unions present at the meeting were the Federation of Trade Unions -- whose members are not on strike -- and the Federation of Hong Kong and Kowloon Labour Unions -- whose 300 workers are employed directly by the port operator, HIT, and who are staging a work-to-rule, RTHK reports.
The FTU says it will not accept a five-percent pay-rise and a two-percent increase in welfare benefits. The two unions have said they want 12-percent.
