TAIPEI, Taiwan — The Executive Yuan said it supported the decision of the


Transportation Ministry and state-owned Taiwan Railways Administration (TRA, 台鐵) to penalize railway employees who went on strike during the Lunar New Year holiday, Cabinet spokesman Hsu Kuo-yung (徐國勇) said earlier today.

Hsu said the Executive Yuan had come to the decision to support authorities in this matter because, while railway employees were entitled to legal and sufficient days off, they were also public servants tasked with serving the public, especially during a holiday such as Lunar New Year.

Hsu criticized railway employees who had decided to stay off duty from Lunar New Year’s Eve to today, the third day of the Lunar New Year – a decision that employees said was their legal right.    [FULL  STORY]
