For Alice, the Progressive Wage Model (PWM) for her profession was a long wait as she saw the cleaners working in her building getting a 25% pay increase by September 2014 when PWM was legislated as a mandatory condition for cleaning companies.
NTUC had been pushing for PWM for the security industry for the last few years in the face of strong opposition from security employer associations.
Last year, a fed up Lim Swee Say (NTUC’s leader) warned he would not back down from getting better wages and jobs for security officers.

“Let me be very clear, we will never allow any one of them (the employer associations) to slow us down.” He said, referring to the employer associations which had refused to cooperate.
After much pressure from NTUC, the breakthrough came this year with the government announcing that Progressive Wage Model would be made mandatory for security agencies from 1 September 2016.
