Union leader fears 'white terror' in aviation
Friday, August 23, 2019
Carol Ng, chairwoman of Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions, said at least 14 people in the aviation industry have quit their jobs or have been dismissed because their involvement in the recent anti-extradition protests, RTHK reports.
She said a wave of 'white terror' is now gripping the aviation industry.
China’s aviation regulator has been exerting pressure on Cathay Pacific Airways, banning all aircrew who have been involved in or express support for the recent protests from operating any flights into mainland airspace. The airline has warned staff that their social media accounts would be scrutinized.
