Job training aimed at increasing skills, job scopes and salaries.
Hospitality workers will be getting pay rises of 10% to 50%, as a result of a new Integrated Progressive Wage model launched by the labour movement's Hospitality and Consumer Business Cluster.
The move is aimed at increasing the skills of rank and file hotel staff and executives to raise productivity and wages.
According to the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), staff will be sent for training to upgrade their skills and expand work scopes.
Meanwhile, staff in managerial positions can tap on a new Executive Development Programme that comprises a 12 to 18-month training schedule. The training for supervisors is funded by the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) up to a maximum S$1,400 a month per individual. To be eligible, supervisors must be earning at least S$1,800 and hotels must increase their salary to at least S$2,000 after training.
NTUC will train some 3,000 workers first and aims to reach more hotel workers over time. There are more than 30,000 people employed in hotels in Singapore.
