Guestbook: I wanna air my views Total: 250 guests Name: a colleague Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: Just want to share something beautiful with you:

God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow,

Sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day,

Comfort for the tears, and light for the way.

Disappointments are like road humps,

They slow you down a bit but you enjoy

The smooth road afterwards. Don't stay on the humps

Too long. Move on!

When you feel down because you didn't get what you

Want, just sit tight and be happy, because God is thinking of

Something better to give you.

When something happens to you, good or bad,

Consider what it means. There's a purpose to life's events, to

Teach you how to laugh more or not to cry too hard.

You can't make someone love you, all you can do is

Be someone who can

Be loved, the rest is up to the person to realise

Your worth.

The measure of love is when you love without measure.

In life there are very rare chances that you'll meet the person

You love and loves you in return.

So once you have it don't let go, the chance

Might never come your way again.

It's better to lose your pride to the one you love, than to lose the

One you love because of pride. We spend too much time looking for the

Right person to love or finding fault with those we already love,

When instead we should be perfecting

The love we give.

When you truly care for someone, you don't look for

Faults, you don't look for answers, you don't look

For mistakes.

Instead, you fight the mistakes, you accept the faults, and you

Overlook the excuses.

Never abandon an old friend. You will never find one who can take his

Place.

Friendship is like wine, it gets better as it grows older.

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred.

2. Free your mind from worries.

3. Live simply.

4. Give more.

5. Expect less.

No one can go back and make a brand new start.

SSS君:

謝謝你的資料,但小弟用的是中文Windows,不知又有何辦法?


一個疑問

找了好幾個不同職系的朋友(當中包括行政主任),都 說自己的工作評核報告中,沒有新加入普通話一項。 究竟作出如此舉措的是哪些職系?有勞知情的同事告知。 謝謝! Name: Shameless Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: 唐門高手 暗器之皇

匿於暗處,口出惡言,點名辱罵他人,自己卻藏頭露尾, 真不枉用毒高手。謹此呼籲,如有遇見此等歹毒無恥之 輩,不論在工作上,或此網站中施放暗器之人,宜將之 殲滅,以免遺禍江湖。 Name: 淫ü Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: 我嘗試請大家放下石頭

行淫被拿的婦人

1於是各人都回家去了;耶穌卻往橄欖山去。 2清早又回到殿裡;眾百姓都到他那裡去,  他就坐下教訓他們。 3文士和法利賽人,帶著一個行淫時被拿的婦人來,  叫她站在當中。 4就對耶穌說:“夫子!這婦人是正行淫之時被拿的。 5摩西在律法上吩咐我們,把這樣的婦人用石頭打死;  你說該把她怎麼樣呢?” 6他們說這話,乃試探耶穌,要得著告他的把柄。  耶穌卻彎著腰用指頭在地上畫字。 7他們還是不住的問他,耶穌就直起腰來,對他們說: “你們中間誰是沒有罪的,誰就可以先拿石頭打她。” 8於是又彎著腰用指頭在地上畫字。 9他們聽見這話,就從老到少一個一個的都出去了;  只剩下耶穌一人,還有那婦人仍然站在當中。 10耶穌就直起腰來,對她說:“婦人!那些人在那裡呢?  沒有人定你的罪麼?” 11她說:“主阿!沒有。”耶穌說:“我也不定你的罪;  去吧!從此不要再犯罪了。” (約翰福音8:1-11)

大家不要以為我打算在這裡說教,其實是因為我看過連日來 數位同事的留言,心裡良久不能平復,才令我想跟大家分享 以上的聖經故事。相信有些同事已經讀過這段經文,當中可 以學習的東西固然多的是(明白這裡不宜討論,有興趣者請 問問你身邊的基督徒,他們必定樂意跟你分享),但是我只 想借這聖經故事說說自己的感受和經驗。

每個人都有自己的意見和立場,不論主觀客觀,總會有些盲 點或不夠全面,這道理我們當然明白。然而,當我們心裡認 為自己的意見高明時,便會批評別人的意見陳腔濫調,沒有 建設性;或是在我們仍能堅持立場時,就罵人家搖擺不定, 隨波逐流。我不是以為自己高高在上,或者想當耶穌,我只 想說我也常常犯這個錯誤,是「文士、法利賽人和從老到少 離開的其中一人」。要糾正或減少犯這個毛病,我學習透視 自己批評別人內裡真正的動機,結果往往是以冠冕堂皇的理 由掩飾自我的驕傲。很慚愧,這情況在我瀏覽留言時也有出 現。所以,如果我的言論冒犯了各位或是引用的經文用得不 恰當,我甘願當被拿的淫婦,被大家用石頭打。(不過,請 “DUP”得細力齱A唔該!)

篇幅稍長,敬請原諒,謝謝各位的忍耐與包容看畢全文。 Name: sss Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments:

Name: Outsider Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: A SCLO called Wong Sui-yu from OLA has recently called a number of CLOs in outposts concerning wordload statistics. Thinking she is the imperial commissioner representing the emperor, this fellow is very impolite and impatient while conversing over the phone with the poor souls, who are mostly the CLOs in charge of an office.

Taking several workload statistics in a year is really a burden for CLOs working in outposts, who are already extremely busy with their routine work. When asked to take additional workload statistics by OLA, their first reaction would be - oh, no, another statistics taking! Take heed, our pseudo imperial commissioner, please be more polite and patient when you are talking with fellow CLOs in outposts, who may be one rank or two lower than you, but they are still CLOs.

Name: May Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: 把人誣為"潑婦"者,自己不是"潑婦",也是"爛佬",noname君你好無禮,而且薑H卻不用真名,這才是影衰晒CLO,人家Wallace君行不改名,坐不改姓,連來自哪個部門都敢說出來,好!至於你這種人,唉,我才懶得理。

有人叫我開列想要協會幹甚麼,這正是我們向Wallace君提出的要求,既然如今有人把球拋還給我,那我就說說我的想法(我不敢說意見,免得又再被薄G潑婦那有甚麼高見!)。

我覺得GM做事太黑箱作業,就以那個甚麼普通話加入評核表格為例,可能我們是邊疆蟻民,所以沒收到甚麼消息,直至有同事於上個月參加了一次主管會議,大家才赫然發現有個叫Working Group on Review of Performance Management System 的物體存在,究竟這個工作小組是幾時成立,那些委員是基於甚麼準則獲委任的,我們真的甚麼都不知道。

單就這件事而言,協會應該在管方成立工作小組之初,便要求增加透明度,因為那些在會上發言的人是代表我們的,但我們連他們是誰、立場如何都不知道,如果他們是代表我們的,為何沒有進行任何形式的徵詢?這叫我們如何安心?看身邊同事和Fight4Right網站網民的反應,都以反對聲音居多,果真多數人都不贊成(不論他們所持的是甚麼理由),我希望協會為我們力爭到底,因為這也是我們的意見。

Wallace君經常呼籲團結,但這根本是空談,因為大家對GM和協會根本不信任,否則大家也不會Peter,Paul and Mary, Nobody, Anybody and Somebody地亂用一通(其實我也不想藏頭露尾啊,只是我怕秋後算帳,不得不有所顧忌)。要建立互信,可以從加強接觸做起,此站"收視率"不低,GM和協會仝人必有貢獻,至少主席一定曾經到此一遊,如果各位大員認為我輩網民有無理指謫,又或見事不明,又或對事實一知半解,大可挺身而出,實地解釋、指正,只要說話有理,網民又不是暴民,大家受過教育、讀過書,應可理解。雖然我輩中不乏說話尖刻之輩,但這些人說的話也有其道理,就算沒有道理,聽聽群眾的想法和感受也不錯吧?(說不定已經有人做了,只是沒有用真名吧!)

鵅H要我們到官方網站去發表意見?哎鵅A要引現代漢語詞典謘A咪搞!嘻嘻,這只是開玩笑,搏各位網民一燦,主席莫怪。不過老實說,官網成份"文匯報",古板老套,又沒有人敢薑H潑婦,那及本站精彩呢?還請移船就磡吧。

我覺得你對站長的批評並不公平,你說他要扮全能上帝,給你們護蔭,他不過把收到的小道消息公開而矣,有 甚麼問題?也不是第一次了,要說他用詞語帶譏諷,那是他的本色,你也不是第一次看這網站吧?

你既批評別人沒有實質行動,只會在網上互相攻訐,但你始終沒有回答我除了空談團結外,你還有甚麼建議? 可知協會只視網主一干人等為異類,人家參選就是要"搞事",幾乎把協會等同私人財產,你勸他們多聽異見者 的聲音,哈,你也省點吧!事實上,在這班人中也有我相熟的人,但一談到協會的事大家就會格格不入,完 全"敵我分明","有佢講冇你講,佢畬竻A錯晒"!問你死未!

至於你說網主搞的那個甚麼籌委會已不存在,又說甚麼已退出簽名運動,我對此事所知無多,我個人認為除非 有很多人想另組工會,否則不宜另起爐灶,但你的立場又如何?是贊成還是反對?我覺得你好像不贊成另組工 會,但對籌委會退出簽名運動又好像很不滿,我真的有點摸不蚗Y腦。

你說我欲以口舌勝人,豈敢豈敢,說到逞口舌之便,大家彼此彼此吧,Wallace你不必太謙!

此外,我的同事想問Wallace,你老是說這個不對,那個不應該,究竟你認為應怎樣做,有何具體的建議?你說 要協會與"異見人士"團結,團結了又怎樣呢?不要說你是甚麼平民百姓,哪有意見,否則只會給人"百彈齋主- 曉彈唔曉唱"的感覺!

Wallace是保皇黨嗎?

首先多謝May的回應。相信你有點兒誤會我的意思,我無意在此爭辯,
只想澄清一下我的觀點。

加入中文主任職系快四年了,坦白說,從前我對職系前途未如現在那麼
關心,這點實在遠不及始終熱衷於職系事務的眾同事。盧穎聰的幹勁和
熱誠,還有本網站站長,以及曾在本站發表意見的同事(包括May),
我堅信你們都比我更熱愛這份工作,對職系更有感情。我同意你的見解
,要不是誕生了這個網站,恐怕不少中文主任仍是沉默的一群。我是個
年資尚淺的中文主任,當初碰上本站誕生,宛如平地一聲雷,帶來無限
希望與憧憬。我曾主動聯絡盧穎聰和站長,希望能略盡棉力,把本站辦
得有聲有色,讓大家在建制以外有一處表達不同意見,客觀理性地討論
職系事務的地方。也許我盡的力實在太棉薄,又不大認同上街遊行示威
,所以一直只能在此略抒己見,偶然替大家整理一下計算自願退休補償
金的公式,最了不起亦不過就自願退休計劃簡介會的內容,向管方提出
質詢,如此而已矣。「書生論政」,恐怕便是恥笑我這類呆子。身為一
名人微言輕的中文主任,生逢亂世,偶然真渴望從某處跑出個英雄來,
像摩西一樣帶領族人脫離困境,找尋樂土。這是我起初一廂情願地對本
站的期望。不過,情況發展下來是怎樣呢?誰認為大家在這裡譏諷這個
、譏諷那個,甚或援引《毛語錄》便可以解決問題呢?雖然我沒啥良方
妙策去拯救萬民於水深火熱之中,但至少我不會傷害我的同胞。或許我
迂腐吧,「君子和而不同」這教誨,我仍不時拿來警醒自己。

我認為站長像peacemaker(甚或pacemaker),是就他報道有關文康署
的小道消息而言。我無暇深究站長從何得知消息,消息傳到他耳裡時是
怎麼樣,他又如何再詮釋這則消息。事實上,文康署翻譯組管方計劃測
試各同事的中文打字水平前,曾徵詢部分同事的意見。當管方詢問我的
意見時,我力求中肯地分析說:「學倉頡可以打中文,但打中文不一定
要學倉頡」。誰來問我,我仍會這樣回答,因為這是道理。我相信當時
計劃尚在磋商階段,憑一眾同事的力量,仍有討價還價餘地的。我們並
不需要一對超然的無形之手,無時無刻蔭庇著。站長一番美意,滿以為
能夠幫我們脫苦海,反而可能令組內上下關係突趨緊張。May質問我是
啥,我只是個平凡的公務員,無論面對上司抑或下屬,憑良心說話,憑
良心處事,如此而已矣。看似容易,你辦得到嗎?我只敢回答:「盡力
而為吧!」

我必須澄清的是,我並無批評人家互相攻訐太「沒品」,我只是感到很
痛心,希望大家把力量集中處理更重要的事情吧。自古至今,鬥爭只會
虛耗人群的心力而已。你認為現在兩幫人你一言、我一語,鬥過你死我
活,這便是具體的建議、積極的作為嗎?我也不是空洞地談團結,我同
樣勸誡工會應好好反省,聯絡異見同事,共謀後計。我更沒有刻意擁護
這個、擁護那個,我從不抱黨派之見,我只會幫理不幫親。我同樣認為
要不是誕生了本站,新一屆工會的工作表現不會更見積極。當初我欣聞
盧穎聰能擠身工會幹事之列,但自此之後,我們便失去他的音訊。我只
知道,中文主任會籌委會名存實亡,而且再沒有參加「全港公務員保衛
權益簽名運動」,但他並無就這事向大家交代。我也認為田繼賢不應高
調主張深化中文公事工作,因為這樣做無異於自掘墳墓。此外,近日工
會計劃去信公務員事務局局長,我對幹事們擬備的信件內容也不盡贊同
。再者,我仍感工會的透明度有待改進,讓會員得以更有效監察其運作
情況和決議。May言下之意暗示我是保皇黨,你又可曾想過,對於像我
這樣的平民百姓而言,皇帝垮台大不了便新聖代興,吃得飽、穿得暖才
是最要緊。俗謂「山高皇帝遠」,計較啥保皇不保皇?

要是May欲以口舌勝人,我寧可認輸,但是贏了......又如何? Name: May (repost) Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments:

誰不知道團結就是力量,可是中文主任協會那班人永遠唯命是從,所謂道不同不相為謀,這點Wallace應該明白吧!

你認為大家在網上發洩是不要得的行為,我卻認為這好得很,至少有個地方可以講講心底話,不怕秋後算帳。而且中文主任向來沉默,事不關己己不勞心,現在竟然有 人大聲說話,雖然是匿名,但也我覺得是一種進步。

況且我喜歡說甚麼就說甚麼,這是我的自由,又要你管嗎?要怪罪也怪罪不到網主身上。你認為網主是peacemaker,那你又是甚麼呢?你認為大家互相攻訐太沒 品,那麼除了空洞地談團結,除了擁護中文主任協會,擁護田主席外,你有甚麼具體的提議呢?其實網頁可以起到監察的作用,令協會積極為我們爭取權益,也不可以說是沒有作用的,至少他們的工作和反應都比以前快了幾倍! Name: Mr. Somebody Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments:

IT'S A HEARTACHE

It is my belief that everthing that goes into its extreme is an inferior form of its being and that one should be on the look out for its backlash. So far, we CLOs have two websites where we can chat and brag. But it seems that both of these websites are going into its extreme. One is treated like the "Apple Daily", where most views are critical and sentimental. The other one, the official website of the GCLOA, is regarded as CLO's "Wen Wei Pao", where only official or semi-official information is disseminated. Both developments do not warrant congratulations.

When people choose to post its views on the fight4rights website, they must have a good reason for doing so. It is for the EC members to find out. At the same time, I pledge our colleagues to be fairer. If we are to post something on the fight4rights website, why not also despatch one to the Association's to allow a fair play and greater accessibility.

With regard to the "talk of the town" - the inclusion of PTH into the appraisal exercise, I do agree that most people - especially those who have not acquired competency in PTH, tend to object the proposal. However, there is a minority who thinks otherwise. And it is deplorable that this minority's opinion is not reflected here on the fight4rights website. Perhaps some may fear that if they openly concur with the proposal, they will invite a shower of diatribe.

My standpoint is, I do not object such proposal in the long run, and on conditions that they are carried out after a thorough consultation is conducted, and when there is adequate training and a fair means of assessment, like many of the colleagues have suggested here. In view of the absence of all the above, I think the management has committed the same mistake TUNG's Government has been committing: they are pushing forward a reform too rashly. Thus a word to the decision-makers: HE WHO STUMBLES THAT RUNS FAST.

Perhaps if one is to take a look at the highest hierarchy, they may have an inkling why it is so. The consultation period is stunningly short. It is merely a perfunctory formality. If a proposal, which is clearly pre-matured, is hard sold against so much anticipated opposition, there must be a heavyweight pushing it mightily behind the scene while some other wise men have chosen to remain silent or subservient. That heavyweight, I guesstimate, may be someone so powerful that no one dare to say, "the emperor has no clothes."

Given the present situation, only a mass display of opposition will be able to turn the tide. The first of such opportunities will come when the results of the survey conducted by the GCLOA are revealed and when there is an overwhelming majority objecting such proposal. If that is the case, someone has to stand up to lead the crusade, I hope the GCLOA will be duty-bound and courageous enough to do so.

Recently, CLOs were each issued a VR formula inviting them to quit the service. How I wish I could leave! But with the meagre $1800 pension I was entitled to, and with the pauper's image haunting my mind, I dumped it in the basket in no time after tearing it into pieces lest I will become the laughing stock in case someone finds out. Poor me!

Now we are told to accept something (PTH) we are not prepared to (though I believe it is a constructive proposal in the long run). The appraisal issue has long been a point of content in our field and now before the old accounts are settled, new controversy has set in, or to be exact, has been brought in. And I can't help wondering: what will be awaiting us round the corner? I really have to bend my head low these days for every time I look up, I cannot see the blue sky. Will there be an end to all these? Poor CLOs!!

Where shall we go...

我愈來愈感到迷惘,不曉得這個基地要領大家往何處去。
難道我們只管每天在喊口號、攪對抗嗎?大夥兒氣沖沖地
發洩過後,我們還應該幹啥?我看到的,只是一群人無休
止地對非我族類冷嘲熱諷,彷如文革時期的批鬥活動,誰
罵得最大聲,誰便是最「革命的」。難道這是中國人的通
病麼?幹嗎一病便病上數千年?世世代代,連綿不斷地把
這怪病傳播下去。我看到的,彷似一幕幕的鬧劇,互相謾
罵,互相攻訐。還記得當初有人指摘田繼賢自封為新一屆
幹事會主席,但這些人可同時看到盧穎聰也忽然當上了中
文主任會籌委會主席呢?這些人又可曾看到中文主任會籌
委會,已不知在何時悄悄退出了「全港公務員保衛權益簽
名運動」?對於我們這群局外人,真給你們弄得有點宭。
還有那些「小道消息」,令文康署一眾同事彷彿慘遭迫害
似的,各方友好紛紛致電慰問近況,究竟是怎麼回事?我
漸漸感到,這網站的主人儼然以peacemaker自居,事無大
小,都要由他主持公道。究竟他是peacemaker還是pace-

我們需要的,是一場鋪天蓋地的革命嗎?

What happens to our grade...


本文原擬張貼在工會的留言版,但該留言版不大支援張 貼大五碼的文章,因此我把它轉貼在這裡。有關Teresa CHAN的文章,請自行參閱工會的留言版,茲不贅。

在第11號留言中,Teresa CHAN曾說:
Is Mr. Peter one of the EC members of the GCLOA? If the
answer is "yes", then the situation makes me (and other
fellow colleagues who casted a vote in the AGM?) worry as
it seems that the EC could not reach a consensus when
they work and its member has to make use of another site
to voice out his dissatisfaction!

同樣地,我也曾作出類似上述的揣測,可惜近日忙於應付
學業,無暇深究內情。Teresa的憂慮,可能也是不少同事
的憂慮。我早已說過,現值危急存亡之秋,團結方為上策
,內訌反而不妙。眼見「中文主任保權益基地」意見欄的
言論日趨激進,不少文章的矛頭更直指工會,「保權益基
地」儼然成為了「反工會基地」,敢問這些同事要求工會
怎樣做才令你們稱心滿意?既然你們有這麼多高見,何不
參與工會,為同事力爭權益?工會的幹事們,既然外間對
你們有這麼指摘,你們可曾想過怎樣平息眾憤,團結各方
力量?

一直以來,當我討論有關職系前途的問題時,力求針對事
不針對人。與此同時,我也在努力學習怎樣多點欣賞別人
所做的事,別光會批評而不幹。曾幾何時有人形容中文主
任是「又肥又大又易捉的水老鼠」,我深信,縱使中文主
任是身形魁梧的恐龍,要是我們離群獨處,同樣可能會遭
其他猛獸殺害。當彼方正興高采烈地援引《毛語錄》時,
我忽然深深體會到國父孫中山先生為何臨終時,猶念念不
忘地說:「革命尚未成功,同志仍須努力!」自家人打自
家人,焉得不亡? Name: 吾道不孤?

The present SAR Government is ruled by thugs. They no longer respect any contracts signed between them and the civil servants. By pushing forward what they call the civil service reform, they are challenging every civil servant to sue them for breach of contract. However, we now have a tamed and domesticated Final Court of Appeal, not to mention the People’s Congress in Beijing, what can we do?

I know that GCLOA supports the civil service reform and other reforms led by C. H. Tung. Let me quote Tim Hamlett of SCMP to tell you what reform means. The word reform, if properly used, implies the correction of some deficiency. The great Reform Act of 1830, for example, expunged from the British constitution the sort of rotten boroughs, with few voters, which our local “reformers” regard with great affection. If you stop beating your wife, that is a reform. If you replace your car that is merely an improvement. If you replace you car with an ill-chosen model, that is a questionable improvement. Changing the terms of service of civil servants is not a reform. It may or may not produce a better civil service. Getting value for money from the civil service was second to stopping the taking of bribes. Abolishing the municipal councils was not a reform. It was just a mistake. Whether services are better or worse as a result is neither here nor there. Deficiencies that used to be blamed on the councils are now blamed on the Government.

Jimmy兄引《毛語錄》引得那麼高興,站長也來引幾段湊湊熱鬧。

對整場"考核普通話運動"的策略分析︰
"革命不是請客吃飯,不是做文章,不是繪畫繡花,不能那樣雅緻,那樣從容不迫,'文質彬彬',那樣"溫良恭儉讓"。革命就是暴動,是一個階級推翻一個階級的暴烈行動。"

管方眼裡的好中文主任︰
"什麼叫工作,工作就是鬥爭。哪些地方有困難、有問題,需要我們去解決。我們是為著解決困難去工作、去鬥爭的。越是困難的地方越是要去,這才是好同志。"

站長寄語GM各位大大︰
"必須堅持幹部參加集體生產勞動的制度。我們黨和國家的幹部是普通勞動者,而不是騎在人民頭上的老爺。幹部通過參加集體生產勞動,同勞動人民保持最廣泛的、經常的、密切的練習。這是社會主義制度下一件帶有根本性的大事,它有助於克服官僚主義,防止修正主義和教條主義。" Name: Pig Pig Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: Putonghua proficiency is not an entry requirement of the CLO grade.

Now that they can so readily accept the inclusion of Putonghua proficiency in our staff report, there is no doubt they will kowtow to any unreasonable core competency in future. I don't think my boss is competent enough to assess my Putonghua nor am I able to assess my subordinates. What is the meaning of including such an item which is rarely tested? Don't tell me that I am a language expert. I am not and I never will! If I am one, I have been underpaid. Tell the management not to blow the trumpet.

有道問卷應該中立,不應有既定立場。小弟對此雖不 敢苟同,但人微言輕,唯有在此放放厥辭。

始終不明白的是︰"署理法定語文專員致中文主任的 信件"附件二所載的反對理由,早已給反駁得支離破碎 (雖然有關反駁的水平委實不高)。如今問卷中再次開 列該等反對理由供會員選擇,難道是為了統一意見, 以免當局碰上意想不到的觀點時,一時想不出如何反 駁而出醜?

幸而,每條題目還留有"其他"這條尾巴,各同事應好 好珍惜!

申明一下立場︰小弟反對在評核報告中加入普通話水 平一項。因此,不妨野人獻曝一下,舉出幾個反對理 由,望能起著拋磚引玉的作用︰

1.絕大部分同事均未有為普通話評核作好準備。貿然 加入"普通話水平"這一項,無異於令部分未受過訓練 的同事丟人現眼(註一),對職系形象大為不利。

2.管方沒有為撰寫報告的同事提供足夠培訓,使其具 備評核他人普通話水平的能力,最終只會令大家爭拗 不休。

3.政務主任、專業職系……太尊貴了,我們豈敢事事 與他們平起平坐?

4.不少中文主任已經在工作量方面自我增值。在凍結 人手的大前提下,他們根本無法騰出時間進一步增值 。

(上面幾項理由/歪理絕無版權,歡迎引用。)

學習語文並非一朝一夕的工夫,更何況我們現時只有定位不明(註二)的普通話課程?

懂普通話的同事,也許會有"終於熬出頭"的快感,甚至以為終於等到升職的曙光,因而極力支持建議。不過小弟得提醒你一句︰物以罕為貴──普通話由人無我有的特長,貶為像不遲到早退的基本要求時,恐怕已再無"利用價值"。

最後,問卷只提到最終要加入"普通話水平"時,有關項目應加到哪裡,卻隻字不提如大部分同事表示反對時,協會應做點什麼工作,究竟屬何居心?(再次提醒大家︰請多多利用"其他"欄!)

註一︰ 一般人多愛嘗試新事物,就像小弟買了一具新手提電話後,總要試過所有鈴聲才肯罷休一樣。既然下屬的評核報告有"普通話水平"這一項,有時間當然會著他/她講兩句普通話解解悶
註二︰下班才上的課,該算是興趣班,還是在職培訓?

同事們,在中央的英明領導下,新評核報告終於加入了普通話能力一欄。這是普天同慶的大日子,代表了中文勞動階級的偉大勝利,我們與社會主義祖國的距離,又拉近了一大步。

但我們要嚴防中央內外的反動勢力,他們處心積慮,以頭號反革命集團為首,不惜開歷史倒車,與偉大的人民群眾為敵,反對這項以普通話為綱的政策。這股反動勢力,只是三數蒼蠅,嗡嗡叫響,我們要高舉中央的革命旗幟,戰無不勝的董主席思想,掃除一切牛鬼蛇神,打落這頭紙老虎。

同事們,我們更要提防打著紅旗反紅旗的反中央集團,這一小撮階級敵人,企圖借屍還魂,口口聲聲要群眾發表意見,但暗中勾結內外反動勢力,破壞中文勞動階級的大團結。

主席教導我們,革命不是請客吃飯。我們要痛打階級敵人,抓革命,促生產,向著回歸後第二個五年計劃邁進,來年亦把中文打字能力加入評核報告內。

主席說,舊社會將人變鬼,新社會將鬼變人,天要變,人亦要變。同事們,讓我們拋出火紅的心,慶祝中央的又一次偉大勝利。

熱切祝賀董主席萬壽無疆,全世界人民大團結萬歲萬歲萬萬歲﹗ Name: Bee Bee Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: Hail to our OLA management! Long live our leaders! Their dedication in establishing and strengthening our position as "language experts" should be highly appreciated!

You see, they have acted promptly, or so to say, almost the first grade to mimic the AO grade in revising our appraisal report and including the item "Putonghua proficiency". Although we "language experts" do not have the same responsibilities as those of AOs, our management have assiduously tried to treat the 2 grades on equal footing by adopting the above 2 measures. I truly believe that these measures are practical means to enhance our status in the civil service since we are constantly associated with the elite - AO grade. Who knows what our management will do after all our grade members are shown to have attained the proficient standard? Maybe our great leaders who embrace the "mission, vision" principles will ask for a bright prospect and attractive pay comparable to that of AOs on our behalf! With this long-term planning for our grade, shouldn't we be happy and "rest in peace"? In my unworthy opinion, I think that our management should not only include Putonghua in our appraisal report but also French, Italian, German and Japanese, etc. to show that we indeed are language experts and we actually out-talent and outperform AOs in this regard.

Some of the grade members may worry about the different standards employed by different appraising officers. May I dare to offer a humble suggestion - we can ask our head of grade to take a benchmark exam. in Putonghua and use it as a reference for the appraisal. I believe that our grade members will be glad to follow the excellent model of our leaders.

I*m also thankful for the management's generous offer of a 2-week consultation period. Actually, in view of the beneficial nature of this proposal, I think that this consultation period is just too long. The management may just go ahead and inform us of the final decision they have made lest other grades may usurp our honor in adopting smart policies which our management has diligently pursued. As most of our grade members are docile and we always trusted the shrewd leadership of our management, is not such a consultation period just a "show"?

Fellow grade members, have you noticed that our management have been extremely efficient lately? The Putonghua proposal have been mentioned informally (at least not to all grade members) for less than a month and now it's already time for making a final decision. What should we say? Apart from enhanced productivity and an urgency to strengthen our professional status, what else can I say? We should all be proud of our efficient and industrious management. Long live CLOs!

吾識普通話

管方終於決定在中文主任工作表現評核報告表格加入「普 通話水平」一項,對我們一眾積極爭取成為語文專家的小 吏來說,實在是一個「遲來的春天」;對在各方面努力增 值的同事來說,更是一支強心針,值得大家舉腳贊成!!

所謂語文專家,豈可止於中英兼擅?本港乃堂堂一個國際 超級大都會,加上近年的中國概念、世貿概念、新移民等 新變數,對各國語言以至我國各省方言專才的需求也大增 。我輩語文專家也應順應潮流,放下合約精神的包袱,朝 該等方面奮鬥;管方則應旗幟鮮明地在評核報告表格中予 以配合,例如在填寫有領取方言津貼之餘,在「評核才能 」中加入如「潮州話水平」、「閩南話水平」,甚至根據 各國遊客數目制訂時間表,逐漸加入如「日語水平」、「 葡語水平」、「法語水平」等,以向全港市民表達一個清 晰的訊息──「香港中文主任不是垃圾」!

至於評核人員最頭痛的問題:如何考證受核人的日語、法 語水平,倒比大家想像中容易解決──既然他們一夜之間 能擁有考核普通話的能力,「奇蹟」再三出現的機會應該 不太低吧?

俗語說:幡桿燈籠,照遠不照近。我們為「理想」而推出 「語言八萬五」的同時,也應鞏固現有的專業地位。比方 說,外界來電查詢中文用法時,接聽的同事竟然「國各不 分」、「年連如是」,豈不貽笑大方?沿用的評核報告已 經在同事們的中英文文字能力上花上不少筆墨,如能把粵 語的發音、表達能力也包括在內,「專業」地位定能大幅 提升。

順帶一提,管方在挖空心思,帶領我們追求「理想」之餘 ,也千萬不要亂了陣腳而忽略正事──如寫中文時棄著重 號而改用粗體字,實在是對本身專業的一大諷刺,可一不 可再!

回應各方就192號留言提出的質詢及意見

早陣子忙於應付業餘進修課程的考試,未暇回應各同事就195號
留言提出的質詢及意見,現綜合簡覆於下:

(一)Young CLO II君就管方擬於未來逐步縮減二級中文主任
   編制的政策,在196號留言詢問二級中文主任是否仍有
   晉升空間。據我理解,刪減二級中文主任人手並不代表
   管方放棄這個職級,有關政策的目標,是希望把中文主
   任職系整體升格,有助確立「中文公事專家」的形象。
   現職二級中文主任仍有獲晉升一級中文主任的機會,不
   過,管方何時才恢復選拔晉升工作,則屬未知之數。此
   外,我認為明年正式實施的工作表現評核新制度,可能
   更直接影響低級同事的晉升機會。因此,大家憂慮職系
   編制縮減之餘,也應注視新評核制度會否成為有關方面
   操控晉升工作的手段。

(二)ZZZ君在197號留言詢問我曾否與管方密議不公開某些敏
   感資料,我肯定答道:「絕對沒有」。不公開某些敏感
   資料,純屬個人決定。有鑑於在互聯網上公開未來數年
   職系的超額人手數字等資料,可能會遭傳媒盜用和歪曲
   報道,為免職系再受居心不良的傳媒惡意中傷,最後我
   決定不公開那些較為敏感的資料,請諒!

(三)就Yinfoon君第202號留言的回應如下:
   多年前我讀過魯迅先生一篇雜文,名叫《暴君的臣民》
   。文中意思大概說暴君固然可怕,但暴君的臣民更令人
   生畏。有些人生活在暴政下,可以默言無語,啞忍一輩
   子,助長暴政發展;有些人揣摩上意,自我審查,為暴
   政添上一抹白色恐怖;尤有甚者,專事告密攻訐,為虎
   作倀,以鞏固暴政為己任。Yinfoon君指我敢言,晚輩
   實在愧不敢當,亦各抒其志而已。不過,Yinfoon君提
   醒我須處事小心,雖屬好言相勸,卻不無自我審查之嫌
   。Yinfoon君又設想不參加「自願退休計劃」的同事,
   他日可能受盡白眼和委屈。這教我想起顏淵簞食瓢飲皆
   在陋巷,終不改其志之事,其情可憫,其志可嘉。比諸
   顏淵,我輩總算饔飧「得」繼,又何怨乎?要怕的,只
   怕那些「以鞏固暴政為己任」的臣民吧......

搦管之際,已收到政府當局發出的「自願退休補償金/特惠金
粗略計算表」。乍看之不禁心酸,原來自己的身價僅得......

To Wallace, did you make a secret agreement that you must hold some information that was not desirable for the information of all other colleagues here in this website?

One more point: If CLO IIs will be eventually removed but our grade is dying, what can the CLO IIs do? (I am also a young and green CLO II!)

To young CLO II, the choice of whether to stay or leave depends on your own financial situation and other factors such as whether you can find a better job elsewhere, any financial/family burden and so on.

管方回應第192號留言提出的質詢


我於七月十三日張貼第192號留言,就「自願退休計劃」實施詳
情向管方提出質詢後,管方隨即致電與我聯絡,並對留言內的
質詢逐一回應。鑑於管方的回應涉及一些不便在互聯網上公開
的資料(如超額人手數字),加上管方承諾日後將另行公布簡
報會所收集的意見,因此我只會扼要交待管方的回應重點:

(一)管方表示追隨刪減職位這大原則乃不可改變的事實。不
   過,早於工會發出問卷徵詢同事參加「自願退休計劃」
   的意願時,管職雙方都未獲正式通知刪減職位的安排。
   其後,公務員事務局局長於六月二十七日向所有受「自
   願退休計劃」影響的職系的首長發出第13/2000號通函,
   才正式公布刪減職位的詳情。換言之,職方是在未全面
   掌握「自願退休計劃」實施詳情的情況下,貿然決定參
   加這項計劃。我曾追問管方,倘若職方最初不決定參加
   「自願退休計劃」,日後會否就人手過剩問題不時受到
   有關方面施壓。管方表示按照正常的人手調配機制,現
   存的過剩人手須於二零零九年才能全數吸納。縱然開設
   「有時限工作的職位」能暫緩人手過剩的問題,但三年
   後當各項有時限工作陸續完成時,管方仍無可避免須面
   對編制過大的問題。

(二)管方承諾刪減職位時,會盡力爭取先行刪減所有有時限
   工作的職位。倘若部分這類職位的工作時限未能配合「
   自願退休計劃」的實施時間,管方會爭取暫緩即時刪減
   足夠職位數目的做法,堅持先行以有時限工作的職位抵
   銷受「自願退休計劃」影響而須予刪減的職位。事實上,
   上述第13/2000號通函第28段明確指出,有時限工作的職
   位可納入計算為須予刪減的職位。因此,管方務請履行
   承諾,保障同事的權益。各同事是管方的寶貴資產,要
   是管方「慷慨解囊」,甘願遭日削月割,難保最終不會
   走上唇亡齒寒的道路。

(三)管方明確表示,要是無可避免須刪減職系的常額編制,
   職系首長有權決定須予刪減職位的所屬職級。第13/2000
   號通函第27段也清楚指出,「自願退休計劃」實施後懸
   空的職位,無須等同最終須予刪減的職位。據小道消息
   透露,管方擬於未來逐步縮減二級中文主任編制,務求
   把職系編制的最低職級升格為一級中文主任。

(四)管方回應倘若是次「自願退休計劃」未能解決職系人手
   過剩的問題,超額人員可獲透過中央調配機制安排擔任
   有時限工作的職位,而不會遭政府強行遣散。不過,「
   自願退休計劃」會否再度推行(甚至成為「常設制度」)
   ,尚屬未知之數。此外,管方這邊廂爭取先行以有時限
   工作的職位抵銷受「自願退休計劃」影響而須予刪減的
   職位,那邊廂又會透過中央調配機制安排超額人員擔任
   有時限工作的職位,究竟有時限工作的職位最終要刪減
   還是要「加推」,實在教人摸不著頭腦。

最後,管方原則上同意公務員編制過大,跟以往的領導層欠缺
遠見不無關係。因此,我想重申一點:中文主任被迫走上自願
退休一途,絕不表示我輩是公務員體制改革的絆腳石。當前任
公務員事務局局長聲稱政府改革公務員體制不能「墨守成規」
時,我們又可否要求政府別再「抱殘守缺」,以部長制取代現
行的局長制,加強各決策局的問責性,確保在政策失誤時不會
胡亂塞責?另外,謹此寄語專員:縱有任何一位同事決定參加
「自願退休計劃」,他/她所領取的退休金都是過往辛勞幹活
而積累的成果,絕不能與「生果金」相提並論。 Name: CLOI Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: A web page at the following address has been developed for calculating the pension.

自願退休為名,刪減職位為實
  ──「自願退休計劃」簡報會後記

坦白說,出席這個簡報會後,我對管方的表現和處事手法徹底
失望(或許我根本不應該對管方心存奢望)。管方三番四次迴
避有關刪減職位一事的質詢,顧左右而言他,甚至拿例舉的超
額人手數字借題發揮,令我深感不滿!既然管方欠缺誠意與職
方對話,何須勞師動眾安排這兩場簡報會?我在會上例舉的超
額人手數字只是信手拈來的比喻,旨在質疑刪減職位這「大原
則」是否允當而已,管方何須深究這個比喻是否屬實?難道我
說愚公移山這個比喻時,大家又要先考究愚公是否真有其人、
移山是否真有其事嗎?恐怕那些鍥而不捨地鑽研這問題的人,
才是真正的愚公。

言歸正傳,我對簡報會上提出的刪減職位大原則始終有所質疑:
(一)職系現時面對的問題,究竟是人手過剩,還是連職位也
   過剩呢?究竟管方旨在裁汰人手,騰空受影響職位而已
   ,還是以刪減職位為最終目標?
(二)倘若管方堅持追隨刪減職位這大原則,當一名高級中文
   主任自願退休後,按照政府提倡的資源增值方針,應以
   刪減一個高級中文主任職位,還是刪減一個二級中文主
   任職位較為划算?管方所謂刪減一個二級中文主任作為
   抵銷的做法,會否過於一廂情願和理想化呢?
(三)當有意參加「自願退休計劃」的同事知悉其職位將於離
   任後被刪減,會否打消他們自願退休的念頭,以免拖累
   職系變相萎縮?管方誇下海口表示,要是「自願退休計
   劃」未能完全解決人手過剩的問題,便可透過中央調配
   機制安頓超額人員。既然如此,管方何不馬上透過這機
   制解決人手過剩的問題?焉用參加「自願退休計劃」?

話說從頭,人手過剩這問題究竟是誰的過失所致?專員輕描淡
寫地表示這是社會的錯,既然如此,幹嗎要拿我們這群無辜的
公僕「贖罪」?政府缺乏遠見,回歸前讓各部門無節制地膨脹
,大量招聘人手。相信各同事應徵時,從沒想過要當「冗員」
,也從沒想過成為政府的包袱,更從沒想過遭到市民唾棄。我
們只想靠自己勞力賺取金錢,養活家人而已,難道這算是妨礙
政府改革公務員體制嗎?人手過剩的是非本末,豈容政府倒置?

政府就像人稱永不沉沒的鐵達尼號,啟航前不斷招攬乘客登船
,及至船身開始下沉時,才發覺船上根本沒有足夠的救生筏。
可幸的是,船上尚有「十一億」救生圈、乾糧及食水分發給乘
客,暫且讓他們活命。然而,乘客在浩瀚汪洋中茫然四顧時,

11 July 2000 Name: Jimmy Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: 大遊行有感

廿五年來,中文主任給人的印象,是忍氣吞聲的一族。

七十年代初,由於家計會工作成功,小學縮班,文憑教師超額,獲安排轉職為中文主任。他們年資高,部分可直接任職高級中文主任,「食去」我們不少位,令一級中文主任的晉升機會受到影響。

七十年代後期,警察傳譯員發起工業行動,政府安排中文主任代替警察傳譯員工作,部分同事淪為「工賊」。

八十年代,法庭傳譯主任罷工,政府準備安排中文主任代替法庭傳譯主任工作,幸好工潮很快便結束,部分同事p致再淪為「工賊」。

當時的翻譯/傳譯或中文主任工會,沒有對外發表一言,表示反對。

公元二千年七月,超過廿位同事參加了公務員大遊行,保衛本身權益。連同家人和支持者,接近三十人從遮打花園遊行到政府總部。臨時成立的中文主任會籌委會,是主辦大遊行的十八個公務員工會之一。中文主任的名字在報章(信報)社論出現,代表了59個被邀參加VR的職系,發起今次遊行。在大會宣讀中文主任會籌委會(出現在SCMP頭版照片正中)的名字時,我有一種特別的感覺。借用某君的一句,我們雖然手中無權,但並非胸中無策。

我在此提出數點﹕

(1) 我們的一級和二級中文主任同事當初入職時,只看到官方宣傳的光明一面,並不知道自己的前途「似咁」,假如最壞的情況出現,如強迫退休,政府有義務和責任為他們安排轉職到其他職系,並保留現職薪金。

(2) 歷任專員,部分雖然很想幫忙,但由於客觀因素所限,能做的不多。中文主任協會除了作內部溝通和合作外,還應對外行動。政府部門現時可隨時刪減中文主任職位,無須專員同意,現時是對外行動,反對政府削減公務員職位的時候了。

(3) 中文主任協會如要反駁站長和本人的言論,最好能抄錄原文,並在網上發表,一來環保,二來可避免斷章取義,誤導沒有上網的同事。 Name: Jimmy Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: 大遊?aelig;有感

今天收到田繼賢先生的公開信,我是中文主任協會的 會員,當日也有去投票,但田先生何時當選主席,我 可一點不知道呀!主席不是要互選嗎?第一次會議好 像還未開哩,田先生雖然"德高望重","眾望所歸", 但那麼快便自動當選主席,也太誇張了吧!可是,如 果這封信不是以主席的名義發出,那是以甚麼名義發 出了?真是奇哉怪也。

信中提及投票當天雙方也有拉票活動,說得對,這是 事實,但OLA有老闆級人馬勸喻下屬投某人一票,也 是事實(別問我是誰爆料啊),或許有人認為這也是無 可厚非,並不算不公平,不過投票於6時15分結束卻 絕對有問題,即使在沙田工作的同事也未及趕得及投 票,更何況北區的同事?還是協會根本假定這些人不 會/不應該投票?我認為票站應該延長開放時間,即 使最終這批同事根本一個也沒來,但也不應剝削他們 的權利。

最後,我希望來屆的主席由我們一人一票選出來,這 樣最民主了。 Name: Áà人 Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: 有人說過,出席周年會員大會可以看到人家的醜態。請問他或她看到什麼?還是發覺醜陋的原來是自己?

Title: Further on AGM

I owe my appreciation to a friend who frankly let me know what she thinks about the two previous articles I had posted on this webpage under the headlines "A message withheld before the AGM" and "an AGM that turned ugly". People who will tell you honestly what they think are rare nowadays and if my writings contain some misconceptions disquieting to colleagues concerned, I hope some elaboration and rethinking here may help.

1. My friend believes it is a misrepresentation to say that some EC members of the last year had quit because "they did not expect to tackle so great a challenge" (under the sub-heading "team spirit" in "A message withheld..."). It is to her understanding that this was not the case.

2. She thinks that it is more accurate and fair to say that "some other EC members ALSO hold the view that it may not be in the best interest of the grade that a confrontation stance is to be adopted as the party line", so as to not to impose the blame on one individual (under the sub-heading "The party line" in the same essay").

3. She thinks that the "proxy issue" should not be construed as a plot as no one could anticipate what would have happened in this year's AGM months before it took place. (Paragraph 2 in the essay "An AGM that turned ugly)

4. She is of the opinion that the AGM was a fair play since both sides had mobilized their electioneering machinery in the campaign and it just happened that one side emerged victorious. She was referring to paragraphs 1 and 3 in the latter essay.

In a frank and friendly conversation , I also explained to her the rationale underlying my writings. While I conceded that her ideas did help enlighten me on some of the issues, I was steadfast (I hope not being "stubborn") on some others. I sincerely hope that our benevolent colleagues would give their views.

你說得很對--政府把中文主任定性為“不合 時宜”的職系,可能也是為了這些原因吧?

所以一些同事認為“大難尚未臨頭”,站長實在 不能苟同。

個人認為,為入職不足三年的二級中文主任爭取 “跟龍尾”轉職到二級行政主任,應是個可行的 做法。

不過,對於一些連撰文反對削減職位也不願意 的大大來說,恐怕絕對不會做出如撰文“開罪”其 他職系之類的“搞事”行為吧?

Title:  An AGM that turned ugly

 

1.   When "Nobody" of message 169 embraced this year's campaign as one done on "equal footing", I saw certain people's victory an ignominy.  Names such as "stirrers" had been generously imposed on the Young Turks" in the last minute canvassing in OLA.  I personally know most of these "Young Turks" and they are mostly benign people.  To call them "stirrers" was obviously a tactic to disgrace and denigrate them to people who did not know them.  "If we let these stirrers come in, there will be a lot of trouble."  Remarks like this showed that some people had regarded the Executive Committee their inviolable turf and their private apparatus and any challenge would be treated with utmost hostility and was to be defeated at all cost.

 

2.   It was discussed in one of last year's EC meeting on the possibility of introducing proxy to AGM.  The suggestion was sidestepped on grounds that a quorum might not be formed.  With benefit of hindsight, events running up to this year's AGM might lead one to speculate that the need to form a quorum might be reserved as a trump card to be played at a critical moment to catch opponents totally surprised and defenceless.  If people could be rallied at such a scale, a quorum should always be within reach.

 

3.   "By telling people your desire to serve on the committee, one can already get even with existing EC members and compete with them on equal footing."  "Nobody's remark could not be more misleading.  And let me "get even" with him on that point.  If he had not turned a blind eye to the massive mechanism mobilized in OLA in the final count down, he must have assumed candidates like Peter had equal access and proximity to the "connection nets" his OLA counterparts had enjoyed.  The mass movement in OLA was exactly the response one would get if he declared that he was coming.  "Nobody" had said that someone was "manipulating figures", but he failed to recognize the greater picture that Peter's 53 votes was a result of a campaign above-board and sporting, and his drive personified a popular demand for change.  Those 53 votes were indeed an outcry highly resounding.

 

4.   If the above observations hold, what "Nobody" had applauded as "a change for the BETTER" was in fact "AN AGM THAT TURNED UGLY".

 

5.   While "Nobody" had called on our colleagues to participate as one of the helpers, I would be more interested to watch from the sideline how people who had regarded the Association as their own turf would treat an outsider like Peter.  Time will tell.

 

6.   As "nobody" had been so kind as to render advice to Peter, in a "copy-cat act", I would advise Peter "To be honest with himself and ACT ON HIS CONSCIENCE."

 

7.   A word to the "Young Turks": in the actual voting, I picked two from each of the lists presented because some of the so-called "Royalists" (a description to which I have reservation) did deserve support.  They are more mature and experienced.  But I admire your valour and benignity.  If you persist, the future may belong to you.

 

p.s.  A few friends of mine had ironically asked me if I myself am the honourable "Nobody".  I had used the alias of "Mr. Nobody" before and to avoid confusion, I had the effrontery to call myself "Mr. Somebody" from now on to avoid confusion with the honourable "Nobody".

各位同事:

最近,對自願退休計劃的討論已引申到對職系前景的討論。

各位除了茞援韝T五年間的公務員體制改革和資源增值計劃外, 亦應遠觀十年八載的轉變。讓我簡單談談三方面:第一, 屆時公務員兩文三語的政策已推行多年,subject officers的 語言能力理應足以應付日常工作。第二,僱員多技能(multi-skills) 乃大勢所趨,公務員亦須跟隨,職務、職系的整合勢難避免。 第三,翻譯軟件的發展日趨成熟,對人手翻譯的影響不容忽視。

各位在思考職系的長遠發展時,上述的趨勢應在考慮之列。

ÂÔ提愚見,敬請雅正。 Name: D.M. Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: This message was intended for June 21, before the AGM. But upon learning that the Chairman of the EC had a public statement to make, this message was withheld to avoid confusion. Now that the dust has settled, I hope this essay will help shed some light on the future of the GCLOA.

A message withheld before the AGM

I have posted two messages on this webpage under the aliases of “Mr. Nobody” and “A pawn”. Initials are used this time to assume personal responsibility of this writing that other EC members have no obligation to share. This piece of work is written against the background of strong criticisms slashed at the GCLOA and the absence of official response from it. As an EC member who has served for only a year, I am the one least qualified to comment on its performance. But being notorious as a person who speaks too much and too soon, I fail, once again, to restraint myself from responding to the remarks made on this webpage - from an insider’s point of view.

A nice person might not be a good unionist

It is a fair comment that the GCLOA has not done enough in the past few years – woefully inadequate indeed in face of the formidable challenges emerged in this couple of years. As an EC member, I shared part of the responsibility. But personal encounters with other EC members only consolidate my affection for most of my colleagues on the Committee. They are really nice people and heartily work for the benefit of the grade. (But of course one can easily refute that a nice person does not necessarily make a good unionist – which I tend to agree). It is deplorable that only little has been achieved in the past. Partly it can be explained by the peace-loving characters of the EC members, partly by the passive nature of our grade members as a whole.

To mobilize the masses

So many people have been so vocal, if not vitriolic, against the Association on this webpage. But my dear colleagues, to bring about changes, or a “revolution” as some of our passionate friends have called for, is not as easy as you would have thought. I have cited the march organized by 華員會 in one of my previous articles to show how difficult it is to mobilize CLOs. The first and in fact, the most fundamental question anyone who would like to revolutionize the GCLOA has to face, is to rally mass support, which would prove to be an issue more thornier than some would have imagined.

Team spirit

If there is any concrete blame EC members in the past year should honestly take, it is our lack of co-ordination and spirit of a team. Every two months or so, we would sit together and discuss and disperse. Some EC members would remain dormant for two months before another meeting was called. Nine people would be a meagre number even when working together, not the mention each on his own. Perhaps one should be fair with the incumbent EC members: they did not expect to tackle so great a challenge when they assume office and that is why, I heard, some serving EC members are quitting in the coming year. I would like to repeat here that most (but I would not say all) of the EC members are kind-hearted people and their stepping down only exemplify their willingness to let other people have a try. All the above analysis points to a fact: if future ECs are to succeed in working for the benefit of our grade, they have to work as a team.

The party line

The third, and in fact the most controversial problem facing the future ECs, is their party line. If I remembered correctly, one of the EC members had said in one of the meetings that it was not the stance of the Association to enter into a confrontation with the Grade Management, which I think was questionable. It is not for the sake of confrontation that we confront. But as a labour union, we are left with little choice if the Government executes maneuvers detrimental to the interests of our grade and refuses any proposal of modification. If the non-confrontation stance is adopted as a party line, we will have thrown in the towel even before the fight starts. If there will be young Turks elected into the future ECs, a serious debate over the party line is likely to ensue.

The exodus

Having said all the above, I am still pessimistic about the way things are going. All our discussions here are fine. But our bane is that we are too disorganized. I do not have the slightest intention of discouraging people from joining the GCLOA (in fact, in another of previous essay I had asked our colleagues to participate actively in the coming AGM). Quite the contrary, I am looking forward to a strong union to lead out of Egypt. And let’s hope that we do not have to wait too long.

Jimmy at #167, you are right, PARTIALLY right.

Existing EC members do have an advantage. People know of their existence, AND their willingness to serve fellow CLOs.

As for canvassing, well, let's talk about the past years first. No one ever approached me before AGM to ask me NOT TO VOTE FOR MR/MS X. All the "canvassing" was: Come, cast your vote for WHOEVER YOU THINK FIT TO BE AN EC MEMBER.

This year, the atmosphere was different - a change for the BETTER. Colleagues with aspirations like Peter LO told their pals their desire to join the EC, so their electioneers spread the message and we got a bigger choice of candidates. Not bad for us voters!

By telling people your desire to serve on the committee, one can already get even with the existing EC members and compete with them on an equal footing. Not bad for the candidates too!

On second thought, why not tell the EC members directly if we want to join the EC? Though they haven't got the politiking device, innumerable lobbyists, colossal financial resources or other illicit means Bill Klinton has, with the EC's so-called "connection net" which even someone as pure as an angel must also have heard of, we can already be on the list of "willing candidates" (as opposed to those whose candidateship comes against their will with their GCLOA membership).

Besides, we can serve our colleagues even if we aren't on the committee. Simply give any one of the EC members a call and say, "Hey, need any helpers?" Or tell them directly what more they can do to make you and others happy.

And, Jimmy, to whom do you think the existing EC members' "patriotism" is devoted? All ranks of fellow Chinese Language Officers? Or the "villains who are trying to eradicate CLOs"? You seem to suggest the latter. What makes you so sure? Name: nobody Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: I simply saw red when I saw the web's comment on Mr Peter LO's score.

The Respectable One who wrote it, could you kindly tell me why you put Mr LO's score in comparison with LAST YEAR'S top one?

You know all too well (don't tell me you don't, 'cause you HAVE read the 1999 AGM minutes) that last year's top score of 55 votes came from the turnout of about 70, representing a 78% support, while Mr LO's 53 votes represents a 37% support as this year's turnout surged to 140. Mr LO no doubt enjoys considerable support, but by saying that he falls only 2 votes behind LAST YEAR's top scorer, you are suggesting(intentionally or not) to those not-in-the-know that last year's top scorer is only marginally better off than Mr LO in terms of support.

I am upset. Not that I am in favour of last year's top scorer, but that I feel deceived. I used to think that these website founders might be a bit radical, but they meant well, and their creation of this forum deserves a big hug and applause from each and every CLO. Now that I see how you manipulate figures to serve your purpose, I have doubts about your trustworthiness. "Two votes" might be a trifle to fuss over, but I must say: I HAVE DOUBTS.

Heartfelt congratulations, Mr Peter LO. I do believe that your joining the EC will bring in new ideas and it may do good to the grade as well as the EC.

But bear in mind, NEW things are not necessarily BENEFICIAL or PRACTICABLE. Whether they are in the case of the new GCLOA EC, the key now, as supposed by some, rests on YOU.

Your mission is more than bringing in NEW+GOOD inspirations. Try and listen. Listen not only to your own reasoning, or to one or two of your comrades, but to ALL YOUR COLLEAGUES in and outside the grade.

Keep your mind open, especially to what the other NEW+OLD EC members may say. They are all fellow CLOs, aren't they? Most of them are not "old cakes who are already safe on dry land and don't care a dime what happens to the rest". In fact I trust NONE OF THEM fits that description. Why would they join the EC if they were that selfish? They must have good reason if they opt for a certain party line, which AFFECTS THEM as sqaurely as it does you. Right?

To each of the candidates, electioneers and voters of the Y2K GCLOA EC election: Thank you all, for bringing us a TRUE competitive election this year, for telling our pals who indeed we want to represent us. May such happen every year, not just in years of crises.

Good luck to the new EC. Name: Jimmy Email: jimmytsoi@hotmail.com Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: Just back from Roma, I am so happy to know that this website is still alive and kicking.

To Wallace Tam: We need a name to join other civil service unions' actions. What can we do? Ask our patriotic GCLOA to take part in other unions' actions on our behalf? No way, or this website is not needed. People are asking us whether CLOs are going to take part in the signature campaign and the mass rally. We want to take part and we need a name to represent us. And that's all. Please take some time to read over Peter's reply to you.

Referring to your last message, do you know what politicking means? Do you know what happened at OLA hours before the voting? Do you think Clinton would have won without his innumerable lobbyists, colossal financial resources and other illicit means that you, as pure as an angel, will never hear of ? Common, be realistic, Peter did not have a connection net to canvass for votes while the existing members of GCLOA did have. We have provided this website as an UNCENSORED forum for you to yell out whatever you feel. Do you think the “official website” of GCLOA as suggested by you will let you do the same?

首先,恭喜在新一屆中文主任協會選舉中得票最多的幾位同事。
綜觀選舉結果,幾位處事較為成熟穩重的同事都得票甚多,恕
我大膽推測,這可能反映出眾同事希望協會為職系力爭權益之
前,毋忘以大局為重,凡事三思而行。歷屆協會主席田繼賢先
生,得票率只名列第四,是否反映同事們不大滿意他任內的表
現?若然的話,田先生好應認真檢討一下。本站發起人之一盧
穎聰得以擠身協會幹事行列,相信定能為協會營造新的處事文
化,使協會在爭取職系權益方面更形積極。不過,新舊人事作
風交替之際,希望雙方都能放開成見、求同存異,避免意氣之
爭。尤其是盧穎聰先生得票率名列十大之末,這可能反映部分
同事未必完全認同你的處事方針。日後爭取職系權益時,不宜
過分激進。君不見「四五行動」成員多年來無休止地進行街頭
抗爭,換來的不是啥豐碩成果,而是屢遭政府拘禁的把柄而已

自從這網站啟用以來,吸引了不少同事在此表達意見。由此可
知,互聯網實不失為眾同事交流意見的良好渠道,本人謹此建
議新一屆協會考慮另行架設一個性質相近的網站,藉以連繫遍
布全港的同事和發布有關職系前途的最新消息,請慎重考慮這
項建議。

Name: Webmaster Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: 由於手上沒有該信(忘了帶回家),站長暫時只回應印 象最深的兩項。

首先,田主席實在對站長太仁慈了!"臭罌出臭草"並 非衝著幹事會而來──其針對目標,實為處事被動、 欠缺危機感的絕大部分同事。協會為免站長死於亂棍 之下,不惜胡亂對號入座,確是勇氣可嘉!

為免同事翻查舊留言,引致網絡塞車,特把該段文字 抄錄如下:

……但從小弟日來努力游說滿口怨言的同事積極改變 命運所得的回應,看來把中文主任職系現時的問題全 歸咎於協會,也並非完全正確。 (突然想起黃宏發議員的名句:臭罌出臭草──要對號 入座的朋友請自便。)

看來上文真的說得上不對的地方,只有兩點:

  1. 逗號宜移到"看來"之後;及
  2. "臭罌出臭草"並非黃宏發的名句──黃宏發的角色 ,是把說這句話的梁耀忠逐離議事廳──好像黃議員 後來也因另一句話,獲得相同的下場。

x x x x x x x x

部分同事似乎已經調校好口徑,一名不願被透露所屬職系的同 事更以"夏鼎基的函件已經outdated"來不斷遊說同事 杯葛遊行。

真想知道這名同事的聘書會不會outdated?這種是非 不分(或埋沒良心)的工賊,想起也覺得嘔心。

言歸正傳。夏鼎基的函件,其實是以淺白的文字,向 全港公務員解釋《中英聯合聲明》附件一第四節關於 保障公務員權益的規定。換句話說,只要本港繼續實 行"一國兩制",《中英聯合聲明》仍然適用,而該信 的精神仍值得職管雙方尊重。

此外,該封函件的內容似遠較協會所理解的廣,起碼 除了保證公務員的職業可在回歸後繼續獲得保障外, 更列明公務人員受僱於特別行政區政府的各項服務條 件,不會低於原來的標準──為協會公開信執筆的同 事,看來真的要多多備課。

一如其他大小高低職系,中文主任同樣是公務員的一 分子,委實不應編造各種藉口,甚至顛倒是非黑白來 "獨善其身"。偏偏脣亡齒寒這句成語,語文專家們始終弄不明白──是時候增值增值了!

首先多謝webmaster的回應。我之所以對這個網站的執事人員
「忽然」成立「中文主任會籌委會」感到錯愕和不快,主要
是因為有關人員在處事程序方面略嫌失當。當「全港公務員
保衛權益簽名運動」號召大家簽名以示個人立場和不滿時,
眾同事對成立「中文主任會籌委會」一事是毫不知情的。及至
「全港公務員保衛權益簽名運動」再次傳真給各同事,要求
大家把行動升級,在辦公室內張貼抗議標語時,我們才「忽
然」發現自己已無緣無故地獲邀加入「中文主任會籌委會」。
誠如webmaster所言,也許部分同事希望能另行成立一個較具
代表性的工會,但在程序上至少須知會和徵詢所有曾在這個
網站發表意見的同事,並在呼籲各同事參與簽名行動前,說
明日後將以「中文主任會籌委會」的名義代表眾同事繼續參
與各種形式的抗爭行動。我相信,這是對各同事最起碼的尊
重。此外,即使真有同事要求另行自組工會,我認為大家也
須三思而行。一方面現有工會並不是完全無能,犯不著置諸
不理;另一方面,自組工會只可能把職系分裂為兩大陣營,
對任何一方的代表性和抗爭能力都有所影響。時值職系危急
存亡之秋,團結一致方為上策,內訌不和反而誤事。

其次,近日得知管方人員對這個網站的態度十分審慎和緊張,
我認為他們實在過分憂慮吧了。還記得首席中文主任走訪各
部門時,總不忘鼓勵員工積極發表意見,而法定語文專員也
曾勸勉各同事在工作上採取主動。如今難得各同事踴躍在這
網站發表意見,既證明我輩決非窩囊的腐儒,也可知大家都
能與時並進,善用互聯網這種溝通媒界。要是專員跟川先生
每天不忘到此一遊,好應該撫掌稱快、滿懷安慰。

最後,webmaster稱許晚輩敢以真姓名示人,未免言重了。
嘗言道:行不改名、坐不改姓,既不是為非作歹,何故不敢
以真姓名示人呢?教人擔心的是,為何這麼多同事不願以真
姓名示人?不是怕「秋後算帳」吧...... Name: Webmaster Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: 譚兄言重了,“辦啥革命大業,甚至推翻特區政府” 這種滔天罪名,本網站如何擔當得起呀?

譚兄如一直有留意全港公務員保衛權益簽名運動的 公布和簽名表格,定會知道是次行動的目標,是要求 政府履行當年的布政司夏鼎基爵士對公務員作出的 承諾,反對政府一連串打擊公務員的措施。

換句話說,當中絕不涉及譚兄所述的顛覆行為。

在該簽名運動發起之初,本站幾位負責人曾進行研究, 認為有必要讓同屬瀕危的中文主任也走出來,對政府的 大小動作作出回應。

由於本站並非隸屬政府中文主任協會,本身亦非工會, 故大家認為需要以一個較合適的名義來參與是次有意義 的運動--初步決定須採用“會”這個字。不過,本站 雖有不少留言,但像譚兄般有勇氣以真姓名留言的朋友 卻寥寥可數,貿然以會自稱,恐怕遭人質疑代表性及 認受性。

在兩面為難下,我們決定另闢蹊徑,也就是加上“籌 委會”的尾巴--既能使用“會”字,也沒有“會” 的實質--當然也不存在代表性和認受性的問題。

把“籌委會”三字講得更明白點,便是有部分同事 認為有需要另組工會,因而組織起來徵詢其他備受現工會 忽視的同事的意見,以研究此舉是否爭取權益的最佳方 法。雖然徵詢過大家的意見後,“籌委會”有可能另行 籌組工會,但現階段絕非工會。

從譚兄你的多次留言,可見你也是個願意對現有問題 提出質疑,認同協會應當強硬一點跟人家討價還價的 有心人,何妨與其他不甘做冗員的同事一樣,走出來 為自己,為同事奮鬥,捍衛應得的權益? Name: Wallace TAM Email: wallace_tam@sinaman.com Homepage: Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: LCSD Comments:

一些意見,一點感想 ......

連月來公私兩忙,雖然對職系前途感慨良多,卻苦無一抒己見
的空檔。近日忙裡偷閒,際此良機,盡訴不吐不快之言。

首先,對於這網站的執事人員在未知會眾同事之前,貿然以
「中文主任會籌委會」的名義參與任何形式的抗爭行動,
我感到十分錯愕和不快。我同意眾同事應爭取機會各抒己見,
也希望中文主任協會能更積極地為眾同事爭取合理的權益。
然而,我從沒有想過要另起爐灶,成立「中文主任會籌委會」。
作為一個人微言輕的公務員,我只要求得到合理的待遇,
並不是要辦啥革命大業,甚至推翻特區政府。(說實在的,
要是政府真的垮台,我們有啥好處?)究竟當初大家為何
要設置這個網站?事到如今,我們有否想過日後爭取權益
的工作何去何從?大家有否迷失方向?

其次,日前得知各部門所開列未來數年刪減中文主任的人數,
請問管方及中文主任協會將如何招架?自始至今,管方及協會
只不時公布各項最新統計數字,告知職系人手又慘遭刪減多少。
何時我們才會聽到管方或協會成功推翻刪減職系人手建議的
佳音?我們的管方和協會何時才學會強硬一點跟人家討價還價?

最後,我真想弄清楚我們的政府究竟出了啥亂子?回歸前還是
好端端的,幹嗎現在弄得人心惶惶、百業蕭條?公僕慘遭日削
月割固然不在話下,即使是醫生、教師等專業人員也被連番
欺壓,打工仔的飯碗朝不保夕。反觀商界人士的權益卻備受
重視,只消上街遊行一回,房委會馬上宣布減售居屋。更奇怪
是,這邊廂財爺說我們正吃著穀種,那邊廂政府還要慷慨地
拿這些穀種餵飼米奇老鼠和亞運龍,難道香港真是一頭會下
金蛋的(跛腳)鴨?晚輩年幼無知,滿腦疑竇,沉思之間,
忽爾想起杜甫詩云:「朱門酒肉臭,路有凍死骨」,此情
此景,恐怕快要隨處可見;又想到《紅樓夢》的賈府門庭
光鮮,裡頭卻原來早已是個空殼子,難為賈府的人還要打

同事留言中有不少批評協會的工作表現,我也在第一次留言中說過協會近年 無甚表現。不過,在大約三年前,管方曾表示直接招聘一級中文主任,當時 協會曾召開特別會員大會,號召同事團結一致,由協會代表職系力爭同事權 益,結果管方亦順應民情。在這事情上,我有以下意見:

當時受影響的同事主要是CLOII,因為升職機會被中途插隊的外人剝奪,不 過,出席特別會員大會的CLOII不見踴躍,反而以高級及一級同事較多,而 CCLO好像只得一個,雖然我並不全部認識與會的同事。該次招聘外間人士 風波,亦有同事自行組織上書管方表示意見。至於哪些職級同事有自行上書, 我當然不得而知,或許各級同事都很多吧(希望如此)。

我並非讚揚協會的功勞,只是想同事再次運用團結的力量。我們今時今日面 對的危機,遠比當時嚴峻,因為現時受到影響的是各級同事(當然只有一位同 事的職級相信不會被刪除),即使是CCLO,我覺得亦有可能被刪除(雖然剛接 到協會主席函件,開列各部門三年內擬刪除的中文主任職位並未包括總中文 主任),只是現時未有計劃吧!

在這特別呼籲CCLO和CLOII積極站起來。CCLO雖然不是職系中的最高階級, 但已是一人之下,數百人之上,如果能夠挺身而出,一定發揮重大作用,而且 現任CCLO中大多為傑出人員,距離退休還有頗長時間,請一同為大家爭取權 益;至於還會逗留在政府不太長時間的CCLO,應該無懼為職系盡點力吧!

二級的同事,如果不參加自願離職計劃,自己又沒有好出路的話,將會是各職 級中留在政府最長的人,如果大家任人魚肉,所受的影響也最深。倘若政府真 的不會強迫遣散,但職位卻遭政策局/部門刪除得所餘無幾,同事可能會被調往 其他職系,面對他人的排擠(無他,因為去搶他人的飯碗,亦可能會影響他人的 升職機會)。

我並無忘記高級和一級的同事,不過,我認為在上級和基層同事的推動下,置 身其中的高級和一級同事自當發揮串連功用,組成各級同事的聯合行動。

"沉默不是懦弱,忍耐不是麻木"、"忍無可忍的時候,我會挺身而出",這些是否 中文主任的寫照?甚麼是忍無可忍?敵人斬你左臂,你說我有右臂,還可以拿筷 子吃飯;敵人再斬你右臂,你說我可以練習用腳吃飯;敵人斬你雙腿,你說可以 由其他人餵食,還可以生存下去;敵人斬你頭顱,你說忍無可忍要反拒,一個四 肢俱廢的人,又能怎樣?還不是連頭也被人割去!

各級同事,好好把扼現時四肢尚全的時候,團結一致,互相扶持吧!

中鬼君:

看了imclo君的統計,你會發現:真正需要徬徨的同事──二級中文主任的參與率極低。由毋需危機感的人選出不再需要危機感的人,毫不教人意外!

?amp;szlig;理Âå?amp;Iacute;(這個留言程式的中文處理能力真弱!)、Sociologist兩位:

你們說得對,這些必然的結果真也令人氣餒。

可以想像,現時協會的委員也曾有過熱心會務的日子,否則也絕對不會自討麻煩。方纔說過,協會較少徬徨一族的會員,要激進也沒有多少會員響應──要已經上位的同事支持更是絕無可能。反之,搞一些溫和得連運動量也欠奉的活動(如參觀),倒有機會博得較成熟的同事參加。

當然,上述只是站長的推斷,但從小弟日來努力游說滿口怨言的同事積極改變命運所得的回應,看來把中文主任職系現時的問題全歸咎於協會,也並非完全正確。

(突然想起黃宏發議員的名句:臭罌出臭草──要對號入座的朋友請自便。)

然而,協會對職系前途問題的被動態度、對能間接影響職系穩定的社會問題不聞不問、迴避與外間工會接觸、某些委員以職管關係凌駕同事利益的取向等,都值得我們大力鞭撻。

Questioner君:

很多人都因發問未能滿足自己,因而踏上尋找真理的道路,你呢?

現時可以做什麼?小弟好像講過許多次了!簡而言之,短期措施是聰明地增值,長期而言是試圖通過輿論,並聯同其他工運團體扭轉政府商效掛帥的氣候。

這個長期目標看似很傻,但站長懇請大家在失笑之前,先看看教師團體在明報每天一評論所產生的作用。

王永平向教師低頭,算是個"concrete and visible"的工運成果吧?

但別要忘記教育界為達此成果而作出的總動員!

"Why are you so interested in reading the constitution?"──兩塊錢買個蘋果也要檢查一下吧,何況付了三十塊錢會費?

看《老夫子》,你能學會何謂"耐人尋味";看協會的會議紀錄,你能學會"應與管方保持良好關係"。看得咬牙切齒之時,站長也不禁懷疑:難道會章有此規定?所以一直很想拿一份來研究研究。 Name: Sociologist Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: Terms like silent, indifferent and pro-management are used to describe some Executive Committee members of the GCLOA.

Now back to the point, I am also against the idea of central emergency team working at home. If such a team is established, everyone can be CLO. Why would the departments still allow CLOs to work in their offices? They can then simply delete all CLO posts in the departments and ask OLA (or the emergency teams, which is cheaper usually if they are not civil servants) to do all the translation work.

How to increase the value of CLO then? I think CLOs can learn how to type Chinese (and many colleagues can do so now), be competent in IT etc. Name: Email: Homepage: Hometitle: Reference: Location: Comments: Name: Webmaster Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: imclo君:

Name: imclo Email: imclo@hotmail.com Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: 中文主任滅亡的原因

中文主任入選五大式微政府職系,原因頗多。法定語文專員職位低微, 未能在局長/署長級人員面前極力維護職系,不無關係。不過,我認為最 大的原因是,現時的高官自以為身為中國人,自當能夠自如運用中文, 殊不知他們當中具有良好中文水平的人根本極少(當然也有例外,如公務 員事務局局長林煥光就在《文訊》中寫出一篇好文章),本身都不懂何謂 好的中文。在他們眼中,任何中文都一樣,他們只在乎如何把心中的說 話以英文的邏輯但用中文表達,根本不明白兩種語文之間的分別,硬要 把不合語法的修訂強加於中文主任原先提交的版本。遇有文件的中文水 平為人所詬病,中文主任遭人指摘語文水平低劣的情況,要高官挺身而 出,承認病句出自他們的手筆,當然不可能。中文主任經常吃下不再生 存的貓,有人提出刪減我們的職位,高官當然更振振有辭。我們就是這 樣哽死了!

我們不能把一切責任盡推給他人,也要反躬自問是否表現不濟?是否在 5:30全組中文主任就準時下班?是否中文主任特別多為人父母者?我們 的約會又比其他職系的同事多?

有同事留言說經常逾時工作,甚至假期亦如是,同事在這情況下當然辛 苦。我認為同事應該與上司商談,以謀對策,或再向上反映。我們可不 能日以繼夜,日日如是,月月如是,長期工作。不過,我們亦得與同一 辦事處其他職系主任級人員看齊,倘若人家連續三年每天工作到晚上十 時,星期六不設長短期周,星期日與公眾假期皆與辦事處相對,我們若 只是最近數月才工作得透不氣來,相信甚難得到管理階層的同情。那怎 麼辦?可以向外求救,如OLA,不過OLA大多愛莫能助(但通知OLA是 必要的,因為可以備案,以防部門投訴)如果不能外判則唯有向部門解釋 困難,要求管理層作出取拾,暫緩處理某些較為次要的工作。

站長建議設立中央救火隊,在下班後接辦各部門的緊急翻譯要求。我認 為此舉絕不可行。對我來說,方便營商計劃針對中文主任的建議,只是 某人為了顯示獨具心思,利用扼殺我們職系而得獎的手段而已。如果你 是某辦事處的中文主任主管,你的下屬(包括中文主任和繕校員)要求你容 許他們辦公時間在家工作,然後透過電腦、傳真等工具把工作交回,你 會怎樣回應?你會答允他們,然後再向上司反映嗎?你的上司會否建議 你也在家工作,不過是先行辭職,然後才把工作外判給你呢?

上述言論或許過於誇張,不過,倘若同事認同下班後的工作可以由中央 處理,那麼,辦公時間內的工作也可以吧!我們不是一直在說,部門開 設中文主任職位的好處,是我們熟悉部門運作,效率更佳。如果中央救 火隊可行的話,部門大可把原駐於部門的中文主任職位刪除,把多出的 同事交還OLA,再說甚麼集中資源,那時只有OLA才有中文主任,外間 再沒有我們的職位,若真如此,實在不敢想像那有多少個中文主任職位。

我並不同意中文主任比其他職系較適合利用通信工具在家工作。我只會 說,倘若其他職系人員,如政務主任、行務主任可以不用在辦事處工作 的話,我們中文主任也可以,我絕不同意我們比其他較為disposable。

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This is exactly why I proposed a central emergency translation team. Instead of detaining tens of departmental CLOs in their office for hours everyday, the proposed team, consisting of just a few CLOs, can serve ALL departments at a time and free ALL other CLOs who have various commitments. Moreover, with the help of hi-tech means of communication, such as e-mail, fax etc, members of the proposed team may perform their standby duties at home. Name: XXX Email: Homepage: Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: To Sam,

I also agree that (as I mentioned earlier) the GCLOA need a reform as early as possible. Therefore I think this AGM would be a great chance for those who are ABLE AND WILLING to be committed to serve the CLOs for their rights and benefits. However, I don't think I am a eligible person (though I am a member of the association) as I am just a small potato with lots of committments.

Note:To Webmaster, you expressed your gratitude to one who helped you to get the constitution of the GCLOA, are you referring to me? Name: CLO II Email: Homepage: Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: Responding to Webmaster,

I think your idea is good, but not great. My boss also proposed to further divide our translation team so that some of us would be off at 6pm because he mentioned that some of the directorate members of the department complained that there is no urgent translation service after 5:30. I think this idea is good because it can increase the 'value' of CLOs, but I don't think this idea is great from the point of view of the CLOs because many of them have various committments such as family, study etc. They cannot, therefore, afford to stay in the office just for such 'occasional' demand for translation service. If this idea is put into practice, who is going to volunteer to stay, if the directorate asked you to report duty at 11am and be off at 7:30pm (for example)? Name: Sam Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: 大家近日的留言都談到協會如何的不濟、無能,這點是事實,是不容否認的 ,協會職員多年來的所謂「中流砥柱」,都是那數隻小貓,近年有些新血出 現,但做了一、兩屆都感到意興闌珊,從傳閱的會議紀錄,大家不難發現,有抱 負、有勇氣的少壯派(雖然論實際年齡有一、兩個可能巳屬uncle輩)每提出一些意 見,都會被佔大多數的老鬼推翻或「禳v住,結果除舉辦了一些參加人數寥寥可數 的羽毛球比賽、米埔遠足等活動外便一事無成。如Jimmy兄所言,加入協會一 是跟現任會員對抗,一是compromise,做到大感無癮便走人。究竟可否改變這現象呢﹖

一年一度的AGM快來了,去年協會一反常態,沒有公布各委員的當選 票數,是由於某些委員以極低票數當選,因而怕太難看;還是因為某些新進的少壯派 票數遠遠拋離其他老鬼而令他們冇面﹖不論是哪個原因,都顯示出某些做了多年也無 甚建樹的老鬼巳漸漸失去支持,亦正是協會換血的好時機。我在此呼籲各位入了會 的同事積極投票,也積極提名身邊一些敢言的有識之士(從這網頁的留言者來看應有不 少,至少肯定比某些不出聲、沒意見或保皇派的現任委員有貢獻)出來參選,藉此改變協會的 面貌。各位曾在這媯o表過高見的人士,如獲提名,請不要推辭;做過協會幹事而感到意興 闌珊的,請不要灰心,等候更多志同道合的同事加入。

在此要聲明的是,我並非協會人員,也不是呼籲大家出席AGM,我只是希望大家能把在 建制外的呼聲搬到建制以內。Webmaster君,我也會跟你一樣,出席AGM,但我神聖的 一票絕不會投給那些多年來無甚貢獻的「中流砥柱」。 Name: Webmaster Email: fight4rights@operamail.com Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: 有些部門的繙譯組主管人員有一個很奇怪的想法,就是把培訓課程等同於一些康樂活動──只是讓下屬在空閒時調劑身心,而不是為了什麼實際得益或職業發展。因此,"公務繁忙"往往成為了禁止下屬參與課程的絕佳藉口。

其實,管方只需把培訓課程定為強制性,並按照各部門工作量高低的規律訂立培訓時間表,大家便有均等機會受訓,為自己、為職系增值。

但此舉會否大大增加各部門繙譯組的工作壓力?

答案是:不會。

方纔說過,管方訂立培訓時間表時,應當參照各部門工作量的週期變化,因此可以避過如財政預算案公佈、施政報告答問及立法會休會前馬拉松辯論等工作量奇高的時段;反過來,這些時段正好讓分區民政事務處、地政處的同事上課。

那麼,突如其來的工作呢?

這便要藉助我們總部──法定語文事務署旗下"人強馬壯"的繙譯隊伍了。

在資源增值的大前提下,各部門不少員工都會做或坐(忽地發現"做"和"坐"的國語音都是ㄗㄨㄛˋ)到晚上七、八點,害得我們不少同事都要在辦公室候命。有時候,全組人員等候了好幾小時,只等到一、兩頁文件,甚至隻字也沒有。此舉不論從資源、士氣等方面來看,都不是很理想的安排。這時候,我們大可利用總部"資源充足"的優勢,把其中一個繙譯組編為"急症組",利用彈性上班時間及流動辦公室科技(註一) ,在非辦公時間替多個部門的同事執行候命工作。

此外,方便營商計劃提到外判繙譯工作的好處之一,是應付非辦公時間的繙譯需求。站長建議的"急症組",不就是針對有關需求的一個"非傷害性"且一箭雙鵰的良方?


註一:流動辦公室科技──電腦、電子郵件、傳真機等,均可協助同事在辦公室範圍外執行公務。有同事指出,以法定語文事務署目前的資源,似難為同事添置電腦,故無法應用有關科技。不過,鑑於這些科技能為同事每天省下幾十元車費和花在交通上的幾小時青春,相信願意自己掏出幾千塊錢買電腦的絕非只有站長一人。 Name: CLO Dog Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: At present working has become the whole of my life.

First, I don't believe the Government would be so generous to give us 62 months of salary. Anyway, let's wait for more details after this Friday's COL meeting.

Second, the terms of the GCLOA, I think, can be obtained from the committee members of the association direct.

Moreover, though I also think that the GCLOA is, to a certain extent, useless, I think it is undesirable to replace the committee altogether. Instead, I think it needs some new members to join the committee to furnish with new ideas, such as how to negotiate with COL and the administration to fight for our rights (this is in fact the aim of this board, right?). If the committee is replaced totally, I think the new committee members, being all layman to this kind of business, may not run the GCLOA well enough to protect our members, then the membership rate would drop more instead!

此外,小淵惠三死了可得到國葬的禮遇,消防員殉職了,靈柩也會用F32消防車來(?)載著出殯──中文主任在家殉職了,搞不好可能換來幾封曠工警告信(不少同事都都是單身貴族,不會有人代向部門報告死訊),輾轉被警方列作屍體發現案處理,背後更可能被其他部門同事暗笑辦事效率低之類之類。

更過分的是:你用性命換來的工作成果,不一定能反映在工作報表上。

曾有這樣的情況:某繙譯組上下一心(指大家都願意加班),創下了字數上的奇蹟。可是,負責統計每月字數的那位大大看見字數過分驚人,害怕給人質疑而主動把字數調低──整組的心血、時間、天倫樂……就這樣付諸東流。

I think even my supervisor doesn't know that I have to work on Sundays because I bring my work home in order to meet the deadline. Contracting out some of the work is impossible for my section as the department tries to cut the number of CLOs. That is why my supervisor seizes as much work as possible. However, I don't think it will work. If the department is determined to do so, no one can secure our posts.

日前與某同事談到本網站,得到的初步回應是不會理會,然 而交談下去,同事對職系前途卻表示悲觀,希望有人能夠為 中文主任找到合適工種,拓展工作領域。不過,同事表示只 會繼續工作,不會參與任何行動,只是靜待屠宰,唉!這就 是典型的中文主任吧!

留言板有言論批評協會未能為職系爭取合理權益,誠然,協 會近年談不上為同事爭取得甚麼,不過,前數年職系發展不 俗,不少同事在短短幾年間便升職,當然京中人快些,外間 同事慢一些,但整體來說,可算是職系的黃金時期,有多少 人又如Jimmy兄般高瞻遠矚,早料到職系的窮途末路。在一 片歌舞升平、人人升職的現象中,同事安於現狀,所關心者 只是何時到自己升職,根本沒有危機感,又哪有甚麼要求? 及至最近一兩年,殺局敲起喪鐘,同事驚覺本身安危,那時 才要求OLA和協會力保飯碗,又有誰能夠抗拒這個無道中央 政府的橫蠻手段?試想歷史久遠的民意架構,加上很多各級 議員的反對,雖然表現有目共睹的(下刪一字),也逃不過滅 亡之路,一個代表性不足一半的協會,再加上一個D3的專 員,我們又能要求甚麼?又怎能只怪責協會呢?我同意某同 事的留言,如你不滿協會的表現,不若挺身而出成為幹事, 求人不如求己,為職系謀福祉,

走筆至此,因有別事,下回再續,願同事共勉之。 Name: XXX Email: Homepage: Hometitle: Reference: From a Friend Location: Comments: To CLO DOG,

I think it is impossible and undesirable if you continue to work like this. This will set a bad example to the management in other departments and other CLOs will also suffer.

Try to fight for contracting out the documents or a longer deadline (though sometimes it is impossible, I understand). Otherwise, you may, as you predicted, collapse one day before the collapse of the CLO grade!

Perhaps you may try to make more friends with CLOs here in order to ease your pressure. Name: CLO II Email: Homepage: Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: To C.W.LAU,

Just kidding. In fact, I don't think it's appropriate to work on Sundays week after week - unless you wanna give others an impression that CLOs are so inefficient and have to work on Sundays to clear all the backlog. While its a good idea to seize more work to satisfy the management with astronomical figure, CLO I/Cs are advised to take some measures (e.g. computerization), to alleviate the pressure by streamlining their work.

本人為C.W.LAU, 中文留言名稱為不躓.因本人使用IE瀏覽軟件,故在留言板上的留言產生中文亂碼,因此讓你有所誤會.事實上,本人以私人訊息留言 劃竷D(錄事第76),是對其以空餘時間設立這個中文主任保權益基地網頁頁致敬.訊息內容全屬個人對網主表示敬意之詞,相 H並不適合在留言板上公開.至於本人的公開訊息,正是錄事77,內容表達有關中文主任職系及繕校員職系唇齒相依的訊息,以及 就留言板上有關”與同事混熟”爭論的個人意見.但因為中文亂碼問題,以致讓你有所誤會.請見諒.

若論及”與同事混熟”一點,我贊同網主的意見,只是選詞上稍為更改一點更好.例如我們以”具政治智慧”來形容與同事混熟 滷〞p,是否更為貼切?要知道,按個別情況,以簡單的工具達到符合實際情況,有利於個人及團體的發展,這才是具政治智慧的做法. 此外,與同事混熟並非代表需要付出,亦非一定要為五斗米而折腰.在多年與中文主任共事的經驗中,我深切體會到,中文主任縱有 才華,但能夠讓高層管理人員知曉者,往往不多.其中的原因,除因為中文主任較少與高層上級交往外,他們的工作能力,只讓與 L們有直接工作接觸機會的中層管理人員得悉.若然,這些與中文主任在競爭政府資源的中層管理人員,在面臨職系取決的環境時,他 怉鄑_坦言直說呢?

我認為,與同事混熟,我們應以正面的角度來看.何謂正面的角度,所指的是以中文主任那種對翻譯的專長,對正統中 慦滌黤菕]有別於時下的報章文學),以及對事物的獨特分析(我發現中文主任在評論事時期間,往往獨具論據,可是只屬小圈 l的討論,其他人無從得悉),在其他同事面前積極地表現出來,以取得他們的認同,並認為與中文主任經常交往,不但對他們的中文修養 有所幫助,更能對他們的工作有所幫助,以達到與同事混熟的真正目的,就是讓其他同事,包括高層管理人員知道,中文主任的工作專 齱A對部門是有實際的幫助.當然的是,為了達到上述目的,中文主任亦必須自我努力,除進修外,還要對社會息息相關的事物多 加留意,才可以讓人留下深刻印象.

我認為與同事混熟只是中文主任的第一步,更為重要的,就是要與社會各階層混熟.最近出席公務員培訓處的簡化字研習班,得悉 磥漪陘F推行簡化字,成立了國家級機構(對不起,正確名稱忘記了),以行政手段強迫施行簡化字.回顧現今的香港社會,錯別字, 巫擐r,甚至乎創造字比比皆是,不單存在於報章文學上,甚至乎部分以正統編寫方式的書籍,亦出現這些”字”,因而讓我們的 U一代,以錯為正,並堅持說這是香港常用字.若然站在中文前線的中文主任(或應該說香港政府及法定語文事務署)再不重視的話 A他朝一日,香港常用字將較正統的中文字更多.有人或許會說,中文主任對此沒有權力,亦沒有時間.但中國推行簡化字,歷時 Q數載,豈能朝夕便成.

過往,曾有立法會議員質詢中文翻譯之差,將責任諉過於中文主任.但是,我們行內人清楚知曉,縱然譯文出於中文主任之 漶A但必經主管人員多次修飾,甚至乎強違中文主任的意見,以個人理念行之,結果使譯文不倫不類.可是,又有誰人可以代中文主 籇磥ㄔ迭D法定語文事務署基於職位低微,當然不會站出來.中文主任協會亦限於權責,亦不能代抱不平,當事人亦只得啞子吃黃蓮 .久而久之,中文主任的專業地位又怎能不被人看低.

最後,我想指出,繕校員與中文主任唇齒相依.曾有繕校員同事表示,在工作上得不到中文主任的支持,使我感到十分難過 D若中文主任以不認同的眼光看繕校員,便等同其他職系的同事以不信任的眼光看中文主任一樣,對當事人是不公平的.

若然可以的話,我希望能夠設立一個繕校員網上論壇,與中文主任保權益基地同進退.但因對設立網頁知識不多,或許需要一年, 兩年,甚至乎三年,只要政府不遣散我們,總有完成的一天.

While we are here enthusiastically debating where the grade of CLO should go, some people must be watching with intentness and interest what this bunch of CLOs can do. Perhaps some are quite certain that it won*t hurt if dogs only bark, when they don*t ever bite. This webpage has been established for over a month, but let us ask ourselves what have we achieved so far. If things go on like this, CLOs will never escape the fate of being guillotined one by one.

Personally, I believe May 31 can be a deadline that a difference can be made. This will be the last date for our grade members to join the GCLOA, thus making himself or herself a qualified voter or candidate for the coming AGM. People on this webpage almost unanimously agree that the Association has failed to represent them in the past, and to a very large extent, I think they are right. But here comes the time they should get themselves organized and do something for themselves. A lot of bright and constructive ideas have been put forward here on this webpage, but it seems that there is no channel to put these ideas into practice.

If we are to fight for something, we can do it within the establishment - which is, in our case, through the GM or GCLOA. Or, we can do it outside the establishment - which is, in my opinion, rally the support of the media or the public, if we can but achieve it. For its limitation as an executive arm of a reactive government body, I think the GM may not be of much avail. But the organization of GCLOA does not belong to an individual, nor a particular group of people. If we feel so strongly that the course it is leading us is wrong, then why don*t we organized ourselves to vote for people whom we trust - people who can make a difference. To fight within the establishment has a distinct advantage - the Government is obliged to answer us, no matter how disagreeable we are to them. It is the most effective way to bring about changes.

Or we can do it outside the establishment - to organize marches, demonstrations or even go on to strike - which of course are hardly the ways the gentle grade of CLO ever go about things. As we CLOs are all kind and peace-loving people and extreme measures are not our cup of tea, I*ll stop talking about this nonsense here. For if there is any CLO who is courageous enough to organize a strike, he or she may be in the headline as the only CLO in the whole grade to do so.

The grade of CLO may be having a hard time, but it is not the end of the world. As long as the Government do not dare to proclaim that the civil service has acquired reasonable proficiency to master both Chinese and English, not to mention Putonghua, and as long as Hong Kong remains an international city, the grade is not yet finished.

If our friends think that only by rallying mass support can we advance our cause, still the bridgehead, still the bridgehead of GCLOA should be secured as an organization for any further actions, within or without the establishment.

Thus I call on our colleagues to act now. Join the GCLOA and organize ourselves to fight our benefits. So many of us have been so vocal on this webpage. Now come the time to put our words into action. IF GCLOA DID NOT BELONG TO US, IT CAN IF WE ACT.

Name: CLO II Email: Homepage: Hometitle: Reference: From a Friend Location: Comments: Here I would like to respond to the views aired by some of you.

A number of you mentioned your views on our CLO association. Yes, I do agree that our association is too 'weak' in negotiation. They are just 'fans' of the grade management. Therefore, although the annual fee was reduced to $30, MOST of our CLOs don't want to join this association.I think it is the right time for the association to think about its own weakness so as to increase the membership rate. You know, when our grade be removed in the future, nobody would listen to the association as its membership rate is so low - therefore its representation power is NOT enough. However, membership should still be on a voluntary basis (I am against some association, like the one of PTR as I was told, to 'strongly advise' all its colleagues to join so as to maintain a high membership rate - which is entirely the wrong picture!)

Second, are CLOs really self-disclosed. I think this depends on both the climate in the department concerned and the CLO him/herself. If the staff of the department don't care about CLOs, then the CLOs concerned should try to open themselves and make friends with the departmental officers as far as possible (as one of the message writers suggested), so that the CLO post would not be removed on the first instance at least. To make friends with departmental officers is also beneficial to the CLO him/herself. You know, you never know when you need help. If you can make friends of the departmental officers, then one of the friends of your departmental officers might help you in the future (though not always true and there is NO guarantee). This is beneficial to us, right?

Third, I would like to say to the EO I of #68. though nobody said that this web is restricted to CLOs only, but I (and perhaps some CLO colleagues as well), your words, though some of them did reflect the reality, can do little good for us. There is no need for you EOs to be afraid of VR as your grade is not involved. So you can say 'Good Luck' to us. If one day EOs also become redudant (though this day would never come!), will you say the same?There is a Chinese saying,'One never know the pain if the needle does not hit his flesh'

One last comment for the time being, I am also strongly against the present system of counting the number of words as a justification of CLO posts. In the past, our superiors were allowed to raise the number of words of an assignment, say +10%, if the assignment is very urgent or technical. But now, because of the guideline issued by OLA (which did very little for our future), IT SEEMS THAT the monthly output of CLOs dropped. I think most of you know that the workload of CLOs in various departments increased a lot in recent years. The decrease in the number of words is just due to the restriction imposed by this guideline - and this create a wonderful excuse for the departments to cut the CLO posts! Although civil servants need to increase their value nowadays in order to protect their future, do OLA really have to be so tight in counting our workload?

有同事誤會我叫人討好上司,,以求保住職位。本人必須澄清, 我不是叫人討好上司。本人這樣說是針對中文主任閉門造車的問題。 如果我們跟其他同事混熟,起碼可以讓人知道中文主任的 "存在",讓 人知道你提供甚麼的服務,尤其是要讓管理層知到中文主任可以為部 門做些甚麼事,如果我們過份低調,根本沒有人覺察中文主任的重要 性,一想到 "刪位",就會想到中文主任。

如果跟同事混熟,讓人覺得你是朋友,還有其他好處,當部門有甚 麼人力資源計劃,要考慮 "刪位"時,我們可以早一點 "收到風",從 而作出適當的回應,而由於同事或管理層了解你的工作,在你向他們 解釋刪除中文主任職位或外判工作時的缺點時,他們更易理解,我們 的游說更易成功。如果我們跟其他同事關係疏離,跟部門人員只有工 作上的來往,缺乏溝通,那部門把工作交給中文主任做,跟交給翻譯 公司做有甚麼分別呢。我們比翻譯公司優勝的是我們佔了地利,我們 應多跟部門同事溝通,了解他們的真正需要,從而提供更貼身的服務。

搞好人際關係十分重要,能夠做到跟處長和其他同事凡事 "有商有 量",肯定對中文主任有利。

Jimmy兄說 "有同事寄望VR落實後自己有機會升職",不知是在那 一段留言看到?對於職系的前景,我認為政府會透過自然流失和VR 逐部縮減中文主任的人手,最後剩下OLA和幾個大部門的中文主任。 中文主任是個夕陽行業,這是個誰都知的事實。

有人或許以為我是管理層的代言人,我可不是,我只是跟大家一樣, 想在這媮螟蕨麉e途的看法,特別是希望,為那些因為供樓或有家庭 負擔,不可能選擇VR及到外面闖一闖的人,想想辦法。我並不是認為 中文主任前途光明,只是在目前的經濟環境下,叫有家庭負擔的中文 主任到外面找工作,他們的風險會很高,工作朝不保夕,隨時面臨財 政困難,相對來說,繼續做中文主任起碼讓他們多吃幾年安樂茶飯。 在目前的環境下,裁員之聲仍不絕於耳,要轉工,我會再等一下。

對於我提出的一些增值方法,有些同事有誤解,我想再作補充。 一個部門是否保留中文主任職位很視乎該部門的翻譯需求,如果根 本已沒有翻譯需求,那同事縱有甚麼增值服務也沒有用。但是如 果部門是考慮是否把工作外判,那中文主任提供教普通話、教授電 腦、隨時答覆查詢等增值服務,或能打消部門外判工作的決定。增 值服務誠然不能逆轉政府外判工作的大趨勢,但卻能夠延長職系的壽 命,這對許多無法離開職系的人來說非常重要。

最後,請那些對我冷嘲熱諷的同事,多多包涵。我只是個平凡的中 文主任,跟你們一樣關心同事的前途,我只是想將我所知的事實、我 認為有用的意見提出來,希望對同事有所幫助,如有不合意的說話,請 勿見怪,並請多多指教。 Name: Webmaster Email: fight4rights@operamail.com Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: 代郵:

Personally, I feel pity for you guys :-( I agree very much with Jimmy that the only effective way is to fight for your rights through the system and it is really too naïve if one thinks that he/she might still have the chance for promotion after the VR. Outsourcing is an irresistible trend of the Government; moreover, the AOs and EOs also have to protect their rice bowls by doing more work. In fact, my EO colleagues and I were told by our boss (a CEO) several months ago not to ask the CLOs to translate the documents but draft both the English and Chinese versions ourselves instead. The reason behind is not that the CLO have done bad jobs, but rather to have an excuse to cut CLO posts later this year (as my boss said). Hence, departments will only cut the posts after their CLOs left under the VR scheme and contract out the work, or just ask we EOs or other subject officers to do it. Hence, Jimmy, I’m afraid that your prediction is bloody right. In fact, I have started learning Chinese inputing method?Uuml;頡 and drafting Chinese documents in order to realize my boss’s plan.

It is right to work hard and fight for your rights (as many of you said), but if it is the general trend that you have to go, than you must go.

這段說話有斟酌之處。查看同事的留言,似乎只有一、兩位同事說過要與同事混熟,與同事建立良好的關係,而沒有人說過要討好上司,藉以保留職位。說中文主任應與同事混熟的留言者,應該是針對一些終日把自己關在辦公室,不與其他同事溝通,對部門事務漠不關心、不聞不問的中文主任。事實上,這類中文主任為數不少。在辦公室堶情A人際關係非常重要。鼓勵中文主任與部門同事"混熟",不但並非眼光短淺,而且甚有遠見。與同事建立良好關係是長遠的事,不但影響到個別部門對個別中文主任的觀感,也影響到其他公務員對整個中文主任職系的觀感,對中文主任職系的前途甚有幫助。

人生在世,就是要不斷增值,終生學習。難道EO不會學普通話增值嗎﹖做翻譯的人,常識要多,見聞要廣,已是理所當然。我們不會在評核報告上讚賞某某準時上班,工作勤力,因為這是必然的。相反,某某如果不準時上班或不勤力,便要提出指摘。出來社會做事,當然要和人溝通交往﹔屬於某個團體或部門,當然要參與這個團體的活動﹔如有共同興趣和技能,為何不可一起鑽研和切磋,沒有理由因為他是上司,便不和他打球遠足。但要臨急抱佛腳,靠這種種去打動個別部門高官,冀望保留職位,未免一廂情願,令人感到厭惡。

今時今日,我們要從制度去爭取保留職位,明碼實價。同是服務D8高官,為何某局要開設總中文主任,而某局則只開設一級中文主任﹖為何某些部門永遠不開設中文主任職位﹖開設中文主任職位的標準,似乎決定於高官個人的喜好。這種人治制度,竟在特區政府生根。你見過某部門總部的DS 是EO I嗎﹖又如設立機制,讓中文主任轉職到其他職系,像七十年代的文憑教師一樣,亦是從制度中爭取。

正如Frederine君所言,我們要爭取專門的翻譯工作來做,在制度上指明某類文件一定要中文主任翻譯。這方面,管方所做的非常有限。為管方說好話的人,應細想管方是否過於被動。哲人說,做事只要盡心盡力,就算不成功,大家心中自有公論。至於政府中文主任協會,更像一尊佛像,對這一兩年來的形勢變化,不向外界發一言,不主動聯絡其他公務員工會,不參加去年的大遊行,只擁抱著與管方的伙伴關係,難怪只有少數同事加入。

一九八九年五月底,我向中文主任協會主席表示,協會應刊登聲明支持北京學運,郤換來一句「緊守工作崗位」。一九九四年,我向協會成員表示,回歸後我們的職位可能不保,可考慮加入華員會為其屬會,增加日後談判籌碼。其後協會進行問卷調查,但反應極冷淡。我們的同事固然不值得同情,但我認為問卷有引導性,傾向於保持現狀,要保持獨立路線云云。我不加入協會,就是上述原因。對中文主任來說,現時絕非太平盛世,協會的做事方式,是否要變一變呢﹖為協會說好話的同事同意否﹖

有留言說中文主任仍有前途,懷著赤子之心者,還寄望VR落實後自己有機會升職。當局已表明,參與VR的職系,五年內不會聘請新人。我估計政府欲以EO取代中文主任,一如ACO取代繕寫員一樣,以精簡架構。明年開始招聘EO II後,現時為區議會寫會議紀錄的同事,便可能成為冗員。

正如某君說,政府的大方向是省錢。近年取消了的職位,不少改以合約形式存在,中文主任的職位將來也不例外。為何政府選擇我們來省錢﹖因為我們溫馴,沒有籌碼。警務處削減文職人員計劃已經出爐,不知又要去除多少個中文主任。李天命思考方法一書,教人路見不平,拔刀相助,自己的權益,更要爭取。在李天命眼中,我們的協會,沉默的大多數同事,是最好的順民!在魯迅眼中,更是一流的殺頭材料。 Name: XXX Email: Homepage: Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: To writer of message 62,

對於前途的憂慮,不同的同事有不同的反應,有同事要爭取更好的VR條件, 這無可厚非,但對於很多一級和二級中文主任來說,他們寧願放棄那50或100萬 元(如果是200萬元,則另作別論)的離職/退休金,而不願放棄中文主任的 工作。老實說,拿茬o幾十萬元,真不知該用來投資,還是用來買樓(還是向銀 行贖身賣樓,如果你那麼不幸的話)。雖然外面的機會很多,但風險也很高。如 果你要到翻譯公司工作,你可以有兩萬或三萬的月薪嗎?你可以每天七時下班嗎 (假設中文主任都要加班到七時)?每個月有幾天要通宵加班工作,你真的行嗎? 如果你不選擇做翻譯,薪金可能更低。在非政府的機構工作,還要擔心減薪裁員, 這樣的工作條件,你是否接受?

做中文主任可不同,起碼我們可以預見三、五年內不會失業,樂觀一點也該還有 十年吧,不過我很有信心中文主任的職系不會解散,但人手在十年後可能大約剩 下200人吧,如果每年有20人退休或離職,屆時應不會出現冗員問題。當然 ,我們亦應未雨綢繆,由現在起多做儲蓄,不幸五年後失業,也有現金應急。

對於大部分一級和二級中文主任來說,選擇只有一個───留下來──這對我們 最有利,中文主任的職系壽命越長,我們的得益最大(相對現在領取VR來說),也就是說, 我們的目標是如何延長職系壽命,如何保住中文主任職位。(保住職位的方法已 有不少人說過,不在這埵A說,請參閱本人第27及第50篇留言)。

對於中文主任職位被刪除,不少人把責任歸咎於管理層,這是可以理解的。不過, 讓我說句公道話,刪除職位、削減人手是政策局的政策,而部門要刪減甚麼職位, 是由部門作主的,如要刪減中文主任職位,部門是會知會OLA,但不需OLA批准, OLA可以做的,是告訴部門有中文主任的好處和分析該部門對翻譯的需求,以律政 司為例,為了讓Law Translators(他們是部門人員)有工作做(因為他們原來的法 律翻譯工作已經完成),律政司堅持把數個中文主任職位刪減,我們能反對嗎?最 後OLA爭取到分期刪減職位,減少對職系的沖激。

同事們,請諒解,OLA不是未盡力,而是無能為力。

近年來,OLA舉辦了不少各類型的講座和訓練班、電腦班、人力資源管理工作坊等, 旨在提高中文主任各方面的能力,這些訓練雖然不能立刻阻止有關部門刪減職位,但 長遠來說,只有專業而又具多種技能的中文主任才能阻止中文主任職系進一步萎縮。

這個保權益的網頁廣受中文主任歡迎,相信管理層也不時瀏覽,同事如果希望管理 層公開甚麼資料,不如說出具體的要求,或交由站長代向OLA提出,或許會得到回應。 其實這個網頁也可作為一個職管雙方溝通的渠道。

同事們,繼續努力吧 Name: ^_^ Email: Homepage: Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: Can anyone predict WHEN CLOs will receive formal letters inviting them to join the Voluntary Retirement scheme?

同事在留言版的說話,給我的感覺是捉錯用神,沒有認清形勢。

第一 同事以為政府推廣使用中文的目標,是要把所有公務員的中文水平大幅提高, 這是誤解,同事其實忽略了節省開支才是政府真正的目的,政府對公務員中文水平的要 求其實並不高,能夠溝通便可,最重要是要減少公務員對翻譯工作的依賴,從而達到凍 結中文主任增長及凍結政府開支的目的。遊說政府要重視中文水平,未必能保住中文主 任的職位。向各個政府部門証明我們物有所值,比外判翻譯公司的水平更高才是我們生 存之道。

第二 同事沒有認清楚,在金融風暴後,省錢是政府的首要目標,無論是 EPP、 人力資源計劃、外判工作計劃,以至加強人力管理和簡化紀律處分程序 等,都旨在節省開支,提高員工生產力(從而減省人手)。金融風暴後,公務員的 穩定相對沒有那麼重要,如何節省金錢才重要,同事或許沒有察覺,政府已經摒 棄了以往的管理手法,而改以營商的手法經營政府,事事講求成本效益,因此我 們必須證明我們物有所值,才能保住職位。

第三 有同事一廂情願的以為中英聯合聲明和基本法可以保住他們的工作, 雖然基本法訂明 "公務員可服務到退休",但是這條文其實是針對回歸時的信心 問題,讓同事安心工作,不用怕回歸後立刻失去工作。同事以為這是護身符, 未免不切實際,舉例說,一個被紀律處分勒令離職的人,難到可以用基本法護 身嗎?政府要解散一個沒有用的職系,我們是無法以基本法護身的,不過根據 以往的經驗,政府大都會以人手重新分配的方法解決沒有用的職系人員。要保 住職位,我們得證明自己的價值。

第四 整體來說,政府對中文主任的需求其實沒有大變:雖然拆局令中文 主任職系出現人手過剩的問題,而據說有若干部門在擬定人力資源計劃(Man Power Plan)時,亦有意刪減一些中文主任職位(資源增值計劃與人力資源計 劃是兩回事,據聞沒有中文主任職位在資源增值計劃中被刪除,在警務處、律 政司等部門刪減中文主任職位與資源增值計劃無關),不過,從有時限中文主 任職位計劃(Time Limited Project)的超額認購情況來看,並非所有部門都 "不識貨",只要並非由部門付錢,部門都樂於開設中文主任職位,這塈 們看到問題的關鍵----錢----部門人員並非因為以為自己的中文水平很高(當 然有人中文水平真的很好,也有人自以為很好),而是為了響應財政司司長 三年削減10 000個職位的呼籲,被迫刪除中文主任職位。我們不得不承認, 當部門財政短絀時,部份由中文主任提供的翻譯服務(部份次要文件),便變 成奢侈品,而不再是必需品(有些 "出街"的文件仍必需經中文主任批改)。即 使部門人員明知自己中文不行,也被迫 "頂硬上"。因此我們的矛頭應該指向 政策局,它們急於求成,沒有詳細考慮清楚便要求所有部門大幅削減人手, 導致服務質素下降。

不少朋友告訴我,他們的翻譯組的工作繁重,經常須加班工作,有時迫不 得已把工作外判(工作繁重、加班工作並非壞事,沒有工作才是最壞的事),也 聽聞過一些朋友可以準時下班,工作不太忙,這塈畯怓搢麆暋D的關鍵----人 手分配不均,有些翻譯組非常缺人,有些翻譯組則有Spare Capacity。拆局 對中文主任來說固然是沉重打擊,不過透過Time Limited Project重新分配 人手,對缺人的翻譯組來說,可以紓緩壓力,部門也可減少外判工作(即是中 文主任可搶回外判的工作)。

對於有部門不顧實際需要,為了省錢而刪減中文職位,我們必須反對。但對 於人手有Spare Capacity的翻譯組,我同意有重組的必要。重組過剩人手, 不僅是針對中文主任來說,行政主任、政務主任也該如此。公務員改革是正 確的方向,但切忌操之過急。

第五 有些同事以為,引起傳媒注意公務員中文水平低落的情況,會有助 提高中文主任的地位。無疑,對傳媒來說,揭發公務員缺失的新聞求之不得, 但他們的重點卻未必如我們所料,放在督促政府改善公務員中文水平上,他們 可能會大字標題: "公務員高薪厚職,文章卻狗屁不通",或者他們還會為我們 算算帳,發覺我們都是高薪翻譯員(請同事自行為所屬的翻譯組算一算每個字的 翻譯成本(薪金加福利),再與外判翻譯的成本比較),到頭來吃虧的是我們。更壞 的情況是,傳媒找來的文章,正是我們中文主任經手的(吃死貓的不算),那我們 就更丟臉了。我也並非針對中文主任,我認為按市場價值來說,整個公務員隊伍 的薪酬都是偏高的(政府已改用營商的方式經營政府)。既然政府沒有像新加坡政府 一樣規定全民減薪兩成,我們應該感到慶幸,更應積極自我增值。

第六 我們的職系沒有即時危險,正如上文說過,各部門對翻譯的需求 仍然殷切。據說,中文主任的工作量過去幾年保持平穩,有些部門的工作量更有 所增加。其實,一天我們還要埋怨工作繁忙,要加班工作,我們的職系都不會有 危險。不過,誰也不能保證,我們可以服務到退休,但是我相信未來五年,職系 該沒有問題,當然,升職是有點遙遠。

第七 站長曾經回應說,教授普通話和多做傳譯工作只能收短期的效用,這 點我是同意的,但在這個 "搶工作"的年代,甚麼工作都可以加長我們職系的壽命 ,增加我們的生存空間,提高價值。至於要透過喚醒人對公務員中文水平的重視, 從而提高對中文主任的需求,似乎是一廂情願的想法。

第八 "搶工作"的年代並非說笑:相信大家都知道律政司有幾個中文主任職位 被刪除,據說是因為要把工作交給Law Translators做、公務員培訓處前幾年也率 先推出 "公務員公文寫作手冊",OLA後來才出版,這些手冊本來就應由我們出版 ---大家應該清楚,"搶工作"做並非開玩笑。

第九 隨荇犮N轉變,各個職系的工作性質必然有所改變,例如以往繕校員是 不用懂中文電腦的,現在誰都要懂;以往打字員不打中文字,現在他們都打了(當 然他們有津貼);行政主任以往不需用電腦,現在他們還要做LAN Administrator。 這都顯示,隨荇犮N轉變,工作性質轉變也是必然的。有些工作,例如監誓、草擬 控罪,固然跟中文主任原來的職責毫無關係,不過,每個部門有不同的需要,滿足 所屬部門的需要是員工的責任,只要不是 "斟茶遞水"等無理的要求,同事請忍耐, 盡量接受吧。我們對部門越有用,部門就會越不會刪減我們的職位。

第十 推廣中文雖是自掘墳墓,但是這是我們的職責,跟翻譯一樣重要。醫生 替病人醫病,病人好了,就不會再來求診,但醫生不應拖延病情,因為醫好病人是 他的職責。我們不應為了推廣中文不利於我們而馬虎了事,因為推廣中文是我們的 工作,引用留言版一位同事的話:We are paid to do this.

鎖定目標 要保住我們的職位,靠傳媒是沒用的(他們甚至會樂意看見我們被裁,相信大家都知 到外面不少人 "眼紅"我們的待遇)。要保住我們的職位,我們得讓顧客(部門人員)覺 得我們的服務好,比外判翻譯好,我們要遊說的對象不是傳媒、不是市民,而是我 們所服務的部門。政府要把可以外判的工作都外判,這是政策---外判翻譯公司也就 是我們的競爭對手,我們要讓顧客知道我們的服務物有所值,這項工作就交由所有 中文主任去做。現在就讓我把保留中文主任的好處說出來:

中文主任的優點

1. 涉及機密的資料文件必須交由中文主任翻譯或審稿,這點我們比外判翻 譯公司優勝。

2. 簡短或緊急文件的翻譯或審核工作交由中文主任做快捷妥當,免除傳真 到翻譯公司的麻煩,也省卻專有名詞出錯的問題。

3. 中文主任的翻譯水準穩定,由於有良好的翻譯和核稿制度,即使有人手 調動,亦不會影響翻譯的水準。翻譯公司的翻譯員由於要兼顧不同顧客的翻譯要求, 專注程度不及所屬部門的中文主任,因此水準不一定及上中文主任。有時他們也可 能因為生意太好,草草完工。

4. 翻譯公司的工作重量,以賺錢為目的,中文主任的工作雖也重量,但從 不會犧牲質素。

5. 中文主任熟識所屬部門的運作(同事務必熟習部門的運作和活動),翻譯得 心應手,誤譯的機會較低。

6. 中文主任可隨時回答部門人員的查詢-----這是免費的。

7. 文件若要修訂多次,翻譯公司是要多收費的,中文主任卻是免費的。

8. 部份中文主任能提供其他增值服務:例如親自教授署長普通話、教授中 文輸入法、管理電腦、設計網頁等。

總之,中文主任物有所值,希望同事繼續增值,我們職系的未來,就在你們手中。 Name: Frederine Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: From a Friend Location: Comments: 拜讀多位同事大作, 心感無奈. 林君看差了! 九五年政府要培 養一支中英兼擅的公務員隊伍, 已經宣判了我們的死亡. 政府的 政策從來都是一致的,當日已經明言, 要主管對未符理想的中文 水平"體諒包容" (見政府語文政策套件), 大家齊心協力眾志成 城義無反顧地降低政府語文水平, 在在顯示他們薾始終!

二 爭取專門翻譯工作, 這是其他人做不來的(律政司一役慘敗 給LTO , 但尚有很多其他工作是他們有限人手不能全做的:他 們曾悄悄的"招工", 替其他部門翻譯合約, 但只能做少量). 將 來我們的過剩人手被迫回歸中央後, 大可爭取這些工作;

三 其他的專門工作有醫學上的, 環保上的, 工程上的, 科技 上的, 化學上的, 天文上的..... 不要再糾纏於普通文件了, 那 是誰都幹得了的(如果是現在政府要求的水平的話).

相信如果可以開拓上述工作, 在可見的未來我們暫時不會湮滅.

為中文主任說句公道話

隨著政府高調地表示要精簡人手, 推行"減肥計劃", 中文主任不幸成為"箭靶", 各部門欲刪減中文主任職位的傳聞言不絕於耳, 導致人心惶惶, 怨聲載道。 本人亦是現職中文主任, 希望藉此機會為中文主任說句公道話。

政府一直揚言要提高公務員的語文水平, 務求培育出一支"中英兼擅"的公務員 隊伍; 而在芸芸政府職系當中, 中文主任的確是雙語的語文專才, 這一點是不容 置疑的; 因此, 在提高公務員語文水平的工作上, 中文主任確是責無旁貸。 正因 如此, 法定語文事務署不斷積極為中文主任舉辦各類培訓課程, 讓中文主任可有 充分的準備, 在落實政府的語文政策方面扮演更重要的角色。 不料, 政府一聲 "減肥"令下, 中文主任竟然成為各部門"開刀"的對象。 假如當局一方面聲言要提升公務員的語文水平, 但另一方面卻漠視語文專才的存在價值, 對他們一直以來的努力和貢獻視而不見, 容許各部門任意刪減中文主任職位, 這種"說一套做一套"的作風, 豈不會令政府的威信蕩然無存?

也許, 中文主任的工作吃力不討好, 也是令他們成為被欺壓對象的原因。 舉例來說, 曾有報章圖文並茂地刊登政府文件的中英文本, 指出誤譯之處, 又將矛頭直指向負責翻譯的中文主任, 嚴重影響中文主任的名聲。 可惜在這種情況背後的種種因素, 卻沒有多少人能知曉, 而常成為眾矢之的的中文主任, 面對種種不公平的指責, 就只有獨嚐啞子吃黃蓮之苦。 事實上, 政府文件最後"出街"的譯本, 往往與由中文主任提供的原來譯文大有出入, , 因為這個最後的"出街"版, 是經原文撰寫人修改後的版本, 有時並未事先徵詢中文主任的意見, 甚至沒有將已修改的地方告知中文主任; 但對於有將修改後版本交回的原文撰寫人, 中文主任會先審閱修訂部分, 然後就可能有問題的地方與原文撰寫人再進行討論及提供意見。 不過, 最後"出街"版本是如何的最終決定權, 仍然在原文撰寫人的手中。 從上述的情況可見, 中文主任所扮演的角色的確較為被動, 但這是其工作性質使然, 並不是中文主任本身的錯, 因此這絕不應成為中文主任職系被輕視、忽視和剝削的理由; 而政府文件在文字上出現錯誤, 亦不應把責任全歸在中文主任身上, 要他們成為代罪羔羊。 因此, 當局及公眾人士都應對中文主任的服務質素和貢獻, 作出公平和客觀的評價。 其實, 上述的錯誤, 就正好反映出公務員整體語文水平的不足, 因此當局就更加不應忽視中文主任在這問題上所能發揮的積極作用, 所以當局實應對中文主任這班"語文先鋒"加倍重視, 讓他們更能夠發揮所長, 協助政府推行各項語文政策及提升公務員的語文水平, 並為各部門提供各種服務如翻譯、擬稿、審稿、編輯及語文諮詢等, 同時亦可協助其他行政或支援性的工作。 此外, 當局亦應採取更多鼓勵措施, 推動所有職系的政府人員均抱著互相尊重和互相學習的態度, 透過互相交流和討論, 共同努力提升公務員的語文水平, 從而為香港的公務員建立更佳的形象。

誠然, 中文主任應該一如以往, 繼續克盡本分、積極進取、精益求精、努力"自我增值", 維持高質素的服務水平; 但同樣, 我們亦希望我們的僱主是一個會肯定員工的努力、體恤員工的需要、有遠見和守信的僱主, 因此本人希望當局在推行"減肥計劃"的問題上, 不要一意孤行、倉卒行事, 反而應該充分考慮員工的意見, 透過共同商討, 定出雙方均可接受的方案。

Early summer night's nightmare

As the Chinese saying goes, "鳥盡弓藏, 兔死狗烹" I wonder whether CLOs were aware that they were digging their own graves when they faithfully executed their duties to broaden the use of Chinese in the civil service in the 90s. Now comes the time that they will be dumped as a junk. I thank the provider of this web page for letting me air out one final faint cry of pain. So many people have done good for the grade of CLO and so many have rubbed salt into a wound. This web page's provider is clearly a person with goodwill.

I feel blessed enough to meet so many of the kindest and most benevolent people in my life - in the grade of CLO. They are genuine, sincere and lovable. I am equally blessed to come across some ugly faces- faces of the hypocritical, insensitive and selfish.

Who is to blame?

When the Government introduced the civil service reforms, many pointed their fingers at C.H.TUNG, which is not totally fair. TUNG is not a competent Chief Executive; in fact he is far from being competent. He was elected out of a compromise, rather than a preference. But it is not entirely his fault that the civil service has to be reformed. The British colonial government had acquiesced the continual expansion of the civil service before the handover. The British knew too well: " I will inflate the balloon. It's the one taking over who will suffer when it busts." Thus when the Asian financial crisis struck, the SAR government was faced with the unenviable and inevitable task of reforming the civil service. Had TUNG been wiser, he would still go ahead with the reform- but with a more gradual and rational approach.

What can we do?

Given the present situation, there is not much that CLOs can do. Grade Management has been talking about widening the scope of duties. It won't help much. Not at this stage. The issue should have been brought into discussion or attention ten or fifteen years ago, if the higher hierarchy had had foresight. Now that the storm has come, I advised the younger CLOs to abandon the ship before too much commitment has been made. With the coming of cyber age, the world out there is full of opportunities. Quitting a sunset grade may end up finding a horizon beckoning them. For colleagues with lesser mobility, they can still hang on to see what the morrow shall bring. If they are prepared to accept a no-promotion, no-less- benefit prospect and if the Government is not going to bring in compulsory retirement (which no one can guarantee), they will have nothing to fear from.

The Chinese Language Officers Association

The CLO Association's membership is barely half the size of the grade. It has been labelled 'inapt' and 'dispensable'. While some criticisms stand, some do not. Activities it organized have met with minimal response from its members. Perhaps it can be explained by the fact that many of the CLOs are parents laden with family obligations. But given that the majority of its members regarding 'reading' as their essential hobby, does it mean that the association should organize a trip to the library to popularize its activities? Even at this time when our grade is in serious jeopardy, not more than 30 CLOs turned up in a march organized by the 華員會this time last year. Before laying the blame on the Association, we have to ask ourselves what have we done to advance the cause of our grade.

The role of COL

A colleague asked, "Why not ask COL to do something?" In the first place, we have to understand his limitations. Outsourcing and downsizing are irreversible trends that COL cannot help but to comply with. In the second place, COL is a directorate A.O. whose fundamental duty is to implement government policies. This is his no.1 priority. A few years or months later, when he is transferred out, the grade of CLO will have nothing to do with him. Defending the rights of CLOs may be, at most, his no.4 or 5 priority. Expecting COL to be the grade's 'Messiah' is only a wishful thinking. (But to be fair, personal encounters with COL have found him candid and sincere as a person.)

Tomorrow is another day

In my discussion with colleagues and friends, we often come up with the question: "What can we do?" My personal response is: " Not much, my friend." There is another Chinese saying, "覆巢之下,豈有完卵". When the sun is setting behind the hills, I pay my affectionate homage to all the respectable colleagues who have continually made contribution to our grade. Feel no qualms, my friends. There is nothing to be ashamed of. After all, tomorrow is another day.

The problem of our grade is that we have an Authority without authority.

Why don't OLA warn Tung XX of the poor language standard of his AOs, EOs, engineers, etc. Because OLA has no authority!

The standard of an administration's official language is the costume it wears - must be presentable. OLA should be given more authority to tailor its boss's language costume.

Why don't GCLOA write to Tung XX that without the service provided by CLOs he will be wearing the King's costume(naked) or Tarzan's costume - ragged, unrefined and bare. Because it has no guts!

Name: 中?主? Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: 中文主任的境況確實嚴峻,不少職位將被刪除,我們也很難預料最終會剩下多少個中文主任職位,前途未卜,有門路的同事宜及早離開、

誓與本職系共存亡的同事應想想辦法,如何保住現有的職位、建議的方法如下﹕

學好普通話﹕有需要時可為所屬部門的同事舉辦訓練班,增加自己的存在價值,最好當然是為署長級的官員服務,為他們親自教授普通話或為他們的演辭標上拼音。現時估計約有十多個翻譯組的同事提供這類服務。如果署長要依賴你教普通話,在刪除中文主任職位前,相信他會三思而後行。很多翻譯系畢業的同事都懂普通話,在這方面我們應比行政主任有優勢。

學好禮儀文書和題辭等技巧,這類文體不是行政主任可以輕易掌握,這也是我們的優勢。

可以的話盡量接受傳譯的工作,這也是我們較行政主任優勝的地方。

融入所屬部門的工作文化,如果所屬部門的其他職系同事習慣加班工作,中文主任主任也最好不要準時下班,否則別的職系的人員就會認定中文主任工作不多,部門要刪減人手時首先就會想到中文主任。如果情況需要你加班,請不要推辭,試想想我們最少的月薪也有20,000,如果我們要在外邊領取同等數目的薪金,加班工作是必然的事。恕我直言,誰覺得政府是待薄了你,你大可辭工不幹到外面闖闖。

不要計較做非中文主任的工作﹕據聞不少同事都願意做非中文主任的工作,例如土木工程署的中文主任要做審核ISOO 9001認証的工作、懲教署的中文主任要做監誓員、律政司的同事要協助草擬雙語控罪、民政事務處的同事要幫手籌辦區議會選舉的工作,我們正擔心人家吃掉中文主任的工作,現在人家把工作送上門還不快快收下。

盡量跟部門內其他員工,尤其是高層員工混熟,讓人覺得你是部門的一員,甚至是朋友,而不是過客。在刪除職位時,相信人家也會給點面子吧。這方面我們要向地政總署的老闆好好學習。

多學電腦﹕例如Word Excel PowerPoint倉頡輸入法,可大大提高自己的生產力,也提高自己的生存價值,最好也學習一點電腦硬件的常識,在需要時幫助其他同事。日後若裁員,你的競爭力也大一點。

有人說,管理層沒盡過力保留職位,據我所知,他們都很努力,例如早陣子他們曾成功爭取,部門若要刪減職位,必先得到Head of Grade同意(即免死金牌)。不過後來 Donaldz曾 要省錢才取消了我們的免死金牌,要求部門刪減職位,冇計啦,大石壓死蟹。

可靠消息﹕HAD刪減的職位一定不是30,連18也不到,五月中便知。 努力工作 努力賺錢 Name: Wallace Email: wallace_tam@sinaman.com Homepage: Hometitle: Reference: From a Friend Location: LCSD Comments:

Name: George LAM of HAD Email: songbird@36.com Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: HAD Comments: 論特區政府的語文政策與公務員體制改革

政府95年9月發表《公務員使用中文事宜工作小組
報告書》,制定「切實可行、積極進取的(語文)策
略,由整體公務員一致執行」(原書第7頁),為回
歸做好準備。《報告書》一再強調,政府當前要
務,是「決心培養一支中英兼擅的公務員隊伍。」
(第5頁)同年11月24日,政府增撥資源,成立法定語
文事務署,改由公務員事務科管轄,乙級政務官出
任首長,並增設一名首席中文主任,希望「發揮領
導作用,致力改變公務員的語文觀念和態度。」
(第5頁)政府推廣中文,中英並重的誠意,在當時來
看,應無可置疑。

回歸後不到兩年,政府推出「公務員體制改革」,
本年3月,發出《公務員事務局通告第3/2000號》,
下令精簡人手,並御賜部門尚方寶劍,削人可以大
刀隆礡A先斬後奏。總之,三年內要削去一萬個職
位,雷厲風行。在四面相煎,左右為難的情況下,
部門只求自保,首要任務,是維持基本服務,其他
枝節,根本無暇兼顧。語文是「奢侈品」,一定首
當其衝,成為犧牲的對象。在「精簡人手」、「資
源增值」兩把利劍之下,政府的語文政策恐怕壯志
未酬,便命喪劍下。

我們要問,政府今日是否已沒有誠意實踐95年的語
文政策?我們不知,但至少以前不是。那麼,政府
的語文政策,又是否已大功告成?我看此說更加無
稽,香港的語文水平,不論中英,數十年來,一向
為人詬病。就以大專畢業生的語文水平為例,單看
輿論,已可見一斑。港英政府百多年來,重英輕中
,那有短短數年,做到中英兼擅之理?我們又要問
,政府目前是否太窮,沒有資源聘請人手,為其文
字把關,為部門起草翻譯文件?又或者單單依賴培
訓,希望公務員接受十多小時培訓後,便能中英兼
擅,講寫俱佳?我看這些說法亦幾近荒唐。

假如政府仍有誠意落實95年的語文政策,那麼,今
次精簡人手,我看要特別注意削減的職位類別。政
府高層一方面希望「整體公務員一致執行」其語文
政策,但又沒有任何鼓勵措施,反而下放權力,任
由部門全權調配資源。在資源緊絀的日子,試問哪
個部門還能如此風雅,去關注語文問題。在這情況
下,語文政策注定失敗。

堂堂特區政府,職員人數近19萬,每年開支達
3000億,假如說連幾個翻譯員語文工作者也容不
下,這會不會笑掉人家的大牙?香港自誇國際大都
會,中英並重,全港8間大學,近年都開設翻譯系,
每年畢業生近千,滿以為為特區儲才,滿足社會需
求,現在聽聞全港最大僱主都說語文人手太多,這
算不算自作多情,枉自單思?一個社會的語文面貌,
政府起典範作用。我們的公務員,頂層的不說,一般
說話都中英夾雜,文字則不中不英,政府有沒有責任
改進,向社會負責,向巿民交代,為新一代做個榜樣
?香港回歸祖國,結束一百五十多年的港英統治。為
體現主權,維護母語的尊嚴,《基本法》第九條規定
,政府機關「除使用中文外,還可使用英文。」由此
來看,中文即使不是政府的主要語文,地位也不比英
文低。我們的政府,我們的公務員,用了英文百多年
,回歸不到三年,便要削減人手,減少推廣中文的資
源,這算不算草率馬虎、淺見短視?

特區政府的語文政策何去何從,我們要拭目以待,看
看這個政府有沒有識見和遠見了。 Name: Webmaster Email: Homepage: http:// Hometitle: Reference: Just Surfed On In Location: Comments: Hi George,

I am afraid we have little chips in fighting for our rice bowls because we can be replaced easily - refer to OLA's Chinese policy. This is the reason why we discarded our original website name of fighting for our rice bowls. Instead, we now name our website as fighting for our rights because we may eventually be fighting for our VR or AOO benefits, in line with other grades being replaced. You may refer to the aims of our website for our future tactics. 1. we must get together before we made any statements. 2. we may write to the press telling the public that we are not 冗 staff. 3. we may write to the Government suggesting that redundant CLO IIs can be absorbed into EO grade, among others, as, for example, EO IIs taking minutes at DC meetings. 4. we support the Chinese Civil Servants Association in their negotiation with the government for more VR benefits. 5. we may take the matter to other authorities (Land Executives started talking with Beijing authorities back in 1995), to the court or to the street. Of course, for this we need not all but some hardcore members.

But first, a letter signed by a hundred CLOs will draw more attention from the recipient than the one signed by few fellows.
