【 海麗罷工成功背後(一)】:居民撐工友

【 惟工新聞】海麗邨清潔工罷工十天後爭取到部份訴求,迫使舊公司民順願意賠償遣散費每人每年1,200元,相當接近工人的訴求。令人鼓舞的罷工成果,容易令人忘記前九天工友面對壓力,例如公司態度強硬傲慢,政府部門逃避責任。因此支援工友的人同樣重要,除了工會和媒體,還有海麗邨居民。罷工期間我們曾短訪了幾位海麗邨住客,大多支持工友罷工。

郭生2005年入住海晴樓,為互助委員會主席,現時工作主要交由秘書處理,但之前處理屋苑清潔事務而發現民順和工商兩間公司關係奇怪,「開會個陣見過兩間公司的負責人,基本同一個人嚟,其實擺到明係圍標。其實我本來都唔想出名,但今次佢地對清潔工真係太過份,連遣散費都冇,今次都係為公義行出來。」

古小姐為海賢樓住客,已住了十多年,也認識負責倒樓的清潔姐姐,有些人是她住多久她們就做了多久。她支持工友罷工:「公司好過份,明明工友係度做左咁多年野,依家迫佢地自願離職,啲年資就要重新計過,假期呀遣散費呀都冇左。之前聽話新公司剩係加十一蚊人工,我覺真係好侮辱人,依家十一蚊買到啲乜呀?我去買菜都要十四蚊啦。」

吳同學(左)和陳同學(右)同是海麗邨住客,今年小六。吳同學在前一晚看新聞知道有罷工,陳同學則收到區議員派發的單張得知。兩人都說平日經常看見海麗邨清潔工,倒垃圾看到他在倒樓,出街看到他們掃地,而且好準時,朝早每次都係同一個位見到佢地,仲清潔得好乾淨。陳同學認為「工友應該攞到遣散費,尼個係舊公司的責任,依家佢地左手交右手就當冇野。我之前都有聯署,要求民順俾返遣散費。」

Oscar 從2004年起就住在海麗邨,是一名中學生,12月海麗清潔工罷工抗議,他得知清潔工被拖欠遣散費,並聯署支持工友。「既然他們有工作就應該有報酬,這是我們的權利來,不然那裏有公義呢?尤其是他們並不富庶,需要經濟上支持自己。我時常在他們工作時碰到他們,有時還替我們搬走大型傢俱,他們都非常熱心。」問及民順打算以「年資乘$200」的利是打發工友,Oscar說:「我不認為公司應該這樣只付每年$200,這根本甚麼都不是,他們應給予工友本來應得的遣散費。」

(Oscar當日以英語受訪,上文為筆者所譯,以下為英文版本。)

Oscar, a secondary school student, has lived in Hoi Lai Estate since 2004. In late December, the Hoi Lai Estate janitors were protesting and ask for petition, Oscar signed for them. “I think they should get their money back because they work hard for it, that is our right, if you work for something you should get the money or else there would be no justice. We know they are poor and need to support themselves.”

“I saw the janitors many times when they are working in the building, they are very nice actually and sometimes they help us with disposing furnitures, they are really loyal to us.”Oscar further comment on how the contractors attempted to settle the protest by compensation of only $200 for each year they have work, “I don’t think the contractor should give $200 for each year they have work, it is nothing literally. They should give the money the janitors deserved.”
