HKCTU's Representative Spoke at the United Nations, Calling International Attention to Labour Rights in China
On 9 November 2018, the United Nations conducted the third Universal Periodic Review (hereafter UNUPR) on China's human rights conditions (including Hong Kong and Macau Special Administration Regions). Before the official UNUPR, civil society bodies are invited to Geneva, to express their views on the human rights conditions in the country which is going to be reviewed, so that other member states could make recommendations to that country during the review process. HKCTU is one of the six civil society members, which was invited to speak at the UNUPR pre-session on 9 October 2018.
