Singapore's labour movement should represent all segments of the workforce.

The target was set by labour chief Lim Swee Say at a National Day celebration of the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC). The voice of the workers has grown stronger, with the number of union members under NTUC increasing from 450,000 5 years ago to 560,000 this year.

The "Labour Movement 2011" vision aims to reach 650,000 members by 2011 and 1 million members by 2015.

There is also greater diversity in NTUC - almost half are women, while permanent residents and foreigners making up 25 percent of the total.

The number of tertiary-educated workers has also increased from 25 percent to 36 percent.

Lim Swee Say, NTUC Secretary-General, said: "If we do it right, we can be the First labour movement in the world that's able to serve an "all CAN" workforce all collars, all ages, all nationalities. “
