REBELLIOUS housing officers are leading a campaign to oust their bosses, who they claim should be held responsible for the recent spate of building scandals. About 1,000 signatures were collected within three hours in a campaign launched yesterday at Tsuen Wan. It calls for the dismissal of Director of Housing Tony Miller, Housing Authority chairwoman Rosanna Wong Yick-ming and Secretary for Housing Dominic Wong Shing-wah. The organisers said they were lining up pressure groups to run the campaign in other districts, vowing to turn it into a 'territory-wide movement'. They accused the housing officials of trying to put the blame for the recent scandals on frontline workers. The move came after Democratic Party legislator Fred Li Wah-ming said he was going to move a no-confidence motion against Ms Wong and Mr Miller at a Legislative Council sitting later this month. Tsuen Wan District Council member and democrat Albert Chan Wai-yip, who supports the housing staff, said he was confident at least 10,000 signatures could be collected in the two-week campaign. Mr Chan said: 'It is to overthrow the Housing Authority by people's power. Mr Tung Chee-hwa cannot let them get away this time. He should also be responsible because all three guys are appointed by him.' Lam Man-cheuk, convenor of the Alliance of Housing Department Staff Unions, which organised the signature campaign, said: 'Those on the top only bother to blame us for this and that. 'They never realise that the problems we are now facing are the result of their incompetent management and dictatorial reforms.' Ms Wong has pushed through a controversial plan to privatise the authority's estate management, affecting some 9,000 housing officers, despite opposition by staff. The Housing Society and several private property management firms have expressed interest in bidding for the authority estate management job. Negotiations with housing staff are under way to form a joint venture to bid for the contracts. An authority spokesman could not be reached for comment yesterday.
