WE are a group of security assistants, government servants of a very low class actually, working in the Legco Building who wish to bring the following complaints to the attention of the public as we have had no success with the senior officers we have approached over the years.

The office and changing room we use is a combined room of around 180 sq ft with 19 lockers and one desk for the security officer working there.

There are a total of 18 security assistants (three of whom are females) who have no other place but this room, where the security officer sits, for changing our clothes.

There is no air-conditioning or any other type of ventilation running through the building outside office hours. The air-conditioner is switched off after office hours, and no fresh air can get into the building as all windows are blocked for safety reasons.

In hot weather it is suffocating, especially during long weekends and holidays, as we have to remain inside the building.

There are also no rest rooms. (Senior officers working in the building have their own offices).

We haven't got anywhere to sit or rest during our recess. There are many rooms in the building so we can't understand why we cannot even use one of the smaller rooms during meal times, tea breaks or other rest periods.

We may be of a mean class, but we still have the right to ask for better working conditions.
