    Taiwan’s president pledges to mediate differences on five-day work week plan (2016/07/28)

    President Tsai Ing-wen met with business representatives today in a bid to develop consensus over the ruling party's proposed five-day work week measure. The Tsai administration, which has had trouble pleasing either labor or business groups with its proposed version of the law, pledged more communication with the parties involved, but has yet to announce a change in course.

    President Tsai met with National Federation of Industries directors hoping to address an ongoing stalemate between businesses and labor over proposals for a five-day work week law. Tsai focused specifically on the issue in responding to six suggestions the business group made in a white paper.

    Tsai Ing-wen
    President
    The idea behind revising the Labor Standards Act is to put into place a five-day work week. We want to solve this problem. The government will do everything it can to explain it to society, and the Legislature also needs to seek the broadest social consensus possible in the course of cross-party consultations during the review process.

    Labor groups previously staged a hunger strike in opposition to the government’s proposed revisions, saying they would not be able to solve the problem of overwork. The bill also drew fierce partisan wrangling in a legislative committee, forcing the DPP to table debate on the bill for the current session. Tsai promised to be a bridge between labor and management, but labor groups weren’t buying it.

    The government should not just play a mediating role. It should use its executive authority to amend the law to reduce the working hours of Taiwan’s workers. Labor Ministry statistics show that one person dies of overwork every 11 days, and one person falls ill because of overwork every five days.

    Labor groups want those who work on both weekly days off, rather than just one in the government’s proposal, to matching days off, and they’re also demanding the reinstatement of seven national holidays per year. Tsai said that before a new system takes effect, the question of the seven holidays will be dealt with based on the Labor Standards Act.

    一例一休爭議修法破局 蔡總統承諾當勞資橋樑

    解決勞資對立問題,總統蔡英文接見工總理監事,接下白皮書。針對一例一休爭議,蔡總統強調,政府修正勞基法,是為了落實周休二日,沒有不能解決的問題;未來政府要與勞資雙方有更多溝通。

    解決勞資僵局,總統蔡英文,接見工總理監事。工總遞送「2016工總白皮書」,提出六大建言,蔡總統回應時,特別提及爭議多時的「一例一休」問題。

    “修正勞基法是為了落實周休二日,我們有心要解決問題,政府要盡其所能向社會說明,立法院在審查過程中,也要透過朝野協商的機制去尋求社會最大的共識。”

    認為實施一例一休還是不能解決勞工過勞問題,勞方不惜絕食陳情,立院衛環委員會還發生藍綠對槓場面,讓一例一休案無法在本會期過關。蔡總統承諾做最勞資雙方間最佳橋樑。不過,勞團還是不以為然。

    [[桃園市產業總工會秘書 林莊周]]
    “政府不應該只是一直扮演這種協商仲介角色,應該直接用他的行政權力,修改法律讓台灣勞工工時真能夠縮短。勞動部自己的統計,大概每11天就會有1名勞工過勞死,甚至每5天就有1名勞工過勞發病。”

    勞團主張兩例版本、堅守七天國定假日,蔡總統則表示,在新制度未上路前,將照勞基法規定,處理7天假的問題。
