香港的货柜车司机:中流收费的争议    
 
Product Ref: 03/180C Company: N/A

Product Type: Case Industry: Transportation

Related Product(s): Teaching Note
于2000 年11 月,拥有八位会员、控制着香港90%的中流货柜处理业务的香港中流作业商会宣布,他们将向付货人收取额外收费。如果付货人拒绝缴费,负责把货柜运送到中流仓库的货柜车司机便须先代缴费,过后再向付货人收回费用。货柜车司机很快就拒绝这安排,接着发生了连串的工业行动,而之后的谈判更涉及政府、付货人及班轮协会。中流作业商会与货柜车司机之间的争拗一直持续至2001 年6 月,最后中流作业商会胜出,货柜车司机须缴付中流收费,在很多情况下更不能向付货人收回该笔款项。货柜车司机为何会成为中流作业商会的牺牲品?中流作业者凭甚么取胜?公众政策的决策者如何能防止再有类似争斗事件发生?大部份属于自雇人士的货柜车司机如何能保护自己,以免日后再被征收新收费?
