Foreign workers stop work at construction site: Another dispute?

Workers at a construction site on Tai Seng Street have stopped working and started to gather outside the building, an office worker who works nearby said on Saturday.

The office worker said it was unusual for this to happen, adding that the workers were still not back in the building two hours later.

Stomp contributor Andy was surprised to look out of his office window and see workers at a construction site stop work. In light of the recent strikes by SMRT bus drivers and two Chinese nationals atop a crane in Jurong, he wonders if this could be a similar incident.

Said Andy:

"I arrived at work around 8am, and the construction site just outside my office was as normal.

"The workers usually start work around 8am, and everything was as per normal. The site has been under construction for about a year.

"The site is at Paya Lebar iPark, Tai Seng Street, next to the Sakae Sushi building. They are constructing the BreadTalk operations headquarters.

"Around 9am, I happened to look out of my window again and saw this curious sight of the workers who had stopped work and gathered on the ground floor.
