Cathay Dragon crew union decries suppression over sacking

Local | 23 Aug 2019 3:12 pm

The head of Cathay Dragon's cabin crew union says she was fired in retaliation for supporting the protest movement. 
Rebecca Sy said today the carrier dismissed her without giving a reason. 
But she says the firing came after she was pulled from a flight at short notice and asked by an airline representative to confirm that a screenshot from Facebook was from her account. 
Sy says the screenshot showed a "mild message'' but the company used it as a pretext for her firing. 
The union says in a statement the firing is a "blatant suppression and retaliation on her participation in the anti-extradition bill movement and her actions to mobilize her colleagues to participate as a trade union leader.'' 
Cathay Dragon is owned by Cathay Pacific. It did not respond to a request for comment.-AP
