Truck drivers have warned of further disruption at Kwai Chung Container Terminal as a nine-month dispute over a $40 cargo-handling fee drags on. But they say the scale of the protests will be smaller than the blockades outside yards in February and March that caused traffic chaos in West Kowloon and the southern New Territories. The Joint Committee on China-Hong Kong Transport Trade, representing the drivers, issued its latest threat yesterday after meeting Hong Kong Port and Maritime Board chairman Gordon Wu Ying-sheung on Monday. Chiang Chi-wai, chief organiser of the committee, said they had asked Mr Wu to appeal to Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa for the Government to do more to resolve the dispute before his Policy Address in October. He estimated at least 40 per cent of the transport trade had given in to the mid-stream operators, who load and unload cargo from vessels. Mr Chiang said the committee planned to organise a new round of solidarity activities in coming weeks that would include more slow-drive protests and stoppages on site.
