The National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) secretary-general Lim Swee Say has tendered his resignation on 30 March 2015 and it will take effect from 4 May.

The NTUC Central Committee met yesterday morning to note his resignation as well as elect Lim’s successor.

In his resignation letter to Diana Chia, the current president of the company, Lim stated he was thankful for “the privilege of serving workers, members and unions alongside 6,000 union leaders and activists.”

Coming to a unanimous conclusion, the NTUC Central Committee elected current deputy secretary-general, Chan Chun Sing, to take over Lim’s role as secretary-general with effect from 4 May.

Joining NTUC on 23 January this year on a part-time basis, Chan started serving in the company full-time from 1 April.

On 27 January 2015, he was co-opted into the NTUC Central Committee and appointed as deputy secretary-general under the NTUC Constitution.

“The NTUC Central Committee, union leaders and staff of the Labour Movement thanked Secretary-General Lim for his selfless leadership and friendship and for making the Labour Movement stronger and more resilient to serve our workers even better. We wish him well in his future appointments,” a statement from NTUC read.
