Over 1,000 sign petition against sale of Robinsons


OVER 1,000 people have signed a petition to protest against the impending sale of the shopping institution, Robinsons.  

Started by 81-year-old Audrey Doyle about two weeks ago, the petition has been making its way round the island, attracting signatures from people from all walks of life. 

Eric Teng, a family friend of Doyle and a lead petitioner, told The Straits Times that the group was hoping to gather “as many signatures as possible” before the company’s annual general meeting on Oct 21. 

Teng said the purpose of the petition was simply “to get the message across clearly that the Robinsons board should reconsider the sale because jobs are at risk.” 

In particular, he said, many Robinsons loyalists are sceptical of assurances from the board that the staff will not be affected by the proposed sale. – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
