The TRUST Teams will work closely with individual companies to implement the downturn measures taking into account individual needs and circumstances of companies. They complement advisory services offered by MOM through its advisory counters and 24-hour hotline.
The TRUST Teams' three objectives are:
(i) to raise awareness and address queries relating to the full range of downturn measures, including SPUR, Jobs Credits, Tripartite Guidelines on MEM, NWC guidelines etc;
(ii) to provide advice and guidance on the implementation of the measures in specific sectors; and
(iii) to seek feedback on whether downturn measures are sufficient and effective in managing costs and saving jobs, and whether refinements and / or new measures are needed.
Composition of Tripartite Upturn Strategy Teams
Six TRUST Teams have been formed, with each team comprising of at least one member from each tripartite partner. The key tripartite members include Mr Koh Juan Kiat, Executive Director of Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF), Ms Cham Hui Fong, Director of Industrial Relations Department from NTUC, and Mr Ong Yen Her, Divisional Director of Labour Relations and Workplaces Division from MOM.
