Leong Sun Iok accused casinos of not allocating shifts properly

Casino union demands paid training

(Macau).- The Macau Gaming Industry Workers Association is urging gaming operators to provide paid professional training to workers and to improve work schedules. The vice-director of the association, Leong Sun Iok, was quoted by Business Daily as saying this would allow workers to better their skills and improve their chances of promotion.


n addition, Leong accused casinos of not allocating shifts properly. He said some casinos basically devise more than 10 different types of shift work schedules for the workers, based on the flow of visitors and gamblers in the pits. Because of that, the rest hours are not evenly distributed, he said.

Leong said it was common for casino workers to work a day shift right after a night shift, “which greatly affects their health, and social and family life”.
The shift system impedes casino workers from taking full advantage of vocational training or higher education courses during their time off, he said.
