CLA chief to take place as head of Labor Ministry

TAIPEI -- The Executive Yuan announced Wednesday that Pan Shih-wei (潘世偉), head of the Council of Labor Affairs (CLA), will serve as minister of the soon-to-be formed Ministry of Labor Affairs.

In line with a government reorganization plan, the CLA will be upgraded to the Ministry of Labor Affairs, which will be formally launched Feb. 17.

Pan, 58, holds a doctorate in Industrial and Labor Relations from Cornell University and is a scholar turned-government official.

He wrote labor policy for the ruling Kuomintang ticket of Ma Ying-jeou and Vincent Siew in the 2008 presidential election and later became deputy minister of the CLA.

Pan took over the post Sept. 28, 2012 after Wang Ju-hsuan resigned from the position over adjustments to the minimum wage.

Since Pan assumed the post, he has challenged labor insurance reforms and has used litigation in a bid to solve problems of workers affected by plant shutdowns.

He is planning to push for an occupational injury insurance act, a labor education act and a dispatch workers protection act this year.
