Jamsri Sukchotrat, the union’s president, led the opposition. However, the letter has not yet reached Ampon, who is currently also the Cabinet secretary-general, because he was upcountry on a government task. The deputy secretary-general received the letter on his behalf at Government House.

The letter demanded that Ampon explain the reason for removing Piyasvasti from the post. The THAI president was fired on Monday, but the reasons stated by Ampon were unclear according to the union.

In addition, the letter asked the company to restore benefits to workers after they were reduced at the time of the introduction of the cost-cutting programme. Now, the company is in a healthier financial situation, with a net profit of Bt3.6 billion in the first quarter of this year.

"Right now we want to get all the benefits back, because the company’s business performance has improved. It is a commitment that was made to the workers previously,’’ Jamsri said.

She urged Ampon to resolve current doubts as quickly as possible and to show his leadership. –
