Through the CTC, AA Singapore and SMMWU will also work towards upskilling and reskilling workers for business and technology requirements for the present and future to achieve a holistic transformation. This will bring about enhanced productivity and innovation for AA Singapore and better career prospects and wages for the employees.
Commenting on the MoU signing, Mr Lee Wai Mun, CEO of AA Singapore said, “The formation of the CTC marks a key milestone of our partnership and forging of a stronger bond with our labour union, SMMWU. I believe that through this collaboration, it will help to build on the Association’s ongoing efforts to enhance and support our employees and workers by equipping them with the necessary skills and knowledge, and to remain relevant in the ever-changing and competitive industry.”
Mr Andy Lim, Secretary-General of SMMWU, shared, “SMMWU is committed to helping our workers upskill and build their capabilities to overcome the rapidly changing technology and the challenges of a ageing workforce. By 2030, one in four in Singapore will be over the age of 65. We want to work with companies for a win-win outcome.”
