Taiwan Quick Take: Chen vows to help workers

President Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁) yesterday expressed the hope that labor rights will one day be enshrined in the Constitution to further protect the nation's workers. Chen said he hopes to see three basic labor rights included in the Constitution. They are the freedom of association, the right of collective bargaining and the right to strike. In addition, the government will continue to push for revisions to three labor-related laws, he said. They are the Labor Union Law (工會法), the Settlement of Labor Disputes Law (勞資爭議處理法) and the Collective Agreement Law (團體協約法). Chen made the remarks when receiving winners of the national model laborer's award at the Presidential Office yesterday.
