Taipei-The Pension Reform Oversight Alliance, a coalition of retired and serving military personnel, public servants and teachers, will disband on Monday because it has accomplished its mission, alliance convener Huang Yao-nan (???) said Sunday.
Huang said he will officially announce the dissolution of the alliance on Monday in his capacity as its convener, but promised to continue to fight for teachers' pension rights in his capacity as director-general of the National Federation of Teachers' Unions.
Asked whether the decision was made after anti-pension reform protesters were accused of disrupting the opening ceremony of the 2017 Taipei Universiade on Aug. 19, Huang said the two events were not entirely unrelated.
In other news, Lee Lai-hsi (???), head of the National Civil Servants Association, said Sunday he plans to establish a new alliance, the membership of which will reach beyond retired and serving military personnel, public servants and teachers.
The group will also address a broader range of issues such as protecting the rights of civic groups, including those opposed to same-sex marriage, he added.
