Cathay Dragon crew union decries suppression over sackingLocal | 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.''
