Unions back extension of retirement age
(07-21 16:32)

Civil service unions have expressed general support for proposals to extend the retirement age beyond 60.
But speaking at a public hearing of the Legislative Council's Panel on Public Service, several groups said they were concerned about the proposals' implementation.
According to the government's public consultation, the retirement age for new recruits would be extended by five years.
Incumbent staff could also be retained beyond 60, but only at the discretion of department heads.
The Federation of Trade Unions lawmaker, Tang Ka-piu, said this system could work against lower-ranked staff, who would like to remain employed, but were unlikely to be as they could be replaced easily. --RTHK
