The State Enterprises Workers' Relations Confederation (SERC) has submitted a letter to the National Legislative Assembly (NLA) requesting that law makers revise the bill pertaining to public gathering regulations.

The State Enterprises Workers' Relations Confederation (SERC) has voiced concerns over the rights of employees, which may be affected by the bill in the event of a negotiation with their employers.

The bill, which is intended to scale down the intensity of future political protests, specifies the time and the locations where demonstrators are allowed to form a rally; as well as penalties they are to face if they flout the rules and regulations.

According to the SERC, the NLA should state clearly that the bill is directed towards political demonstrations so as to separate the labor sector from politics.

NLA member Somchai Sawangkarn promised to forward the SERC’s proposal to the NLA president.

He confirmed that the issuance of protest-control laws must continue, but that the NLA will try its best to protect the public’s rights.-VNA
