Arrested PRC workers had contacted MOM before acting on their own


Police on Thursday arrested two workers from China in connection with a case of unlawfully remaining at the place and intentionally causing alarm.

This after both men had allegedly climbed up to the top of two 10-storey high tower cranes in a Jurong worksite in protest over a wage dispute with their employer.

Preliminary findings by the Ministry of Manpower showed that the two workers, Zhu Guilei and Wu Xiaolin, had approached its customer relations officers on Wednesday.

They had claimed that they had outstanding salaries owed to them by employer Zhong Jiang (S) International but did not have supporting documents.
