    Dear Chris,
    Hi, I am Nevin, How are you? I mentioned to you before that I am a former student major in business journalism in Shanghai University of Finance & Economics. And now a student in the University of Hong Kong. Right now I have a labor story on hand. The University of Hong Kong is going to use the clause of “grandfathering” to resructure its salary and promotion system. Nonacademic Staff Association of the university and other two staff unions, worrying about more salary cut and welfare decreasing, are fighting against university’s decision and launching a campaign on campus, pasting protecting posters everywhere. A senior member of a pro-democracy political party in HK also was invited to help the non academic staff. I had interviewed the two union leaders, as well as Vice-Chancellor of HKU,what I got is a big story as not only conflicts between University and Staffs but also conflicts between union leaders. I have done my reporting job and writing as well, but I am still working on it and very insatisfied about what I have done so far. I want to write it into a good story, which, with my limited writing skill, is very difficult.
    Can you help me on this? Can you give me some hints on writing labour story? I am quite intereted in this kind of business story….
    Thank you for your concern.

    Yours sincerely,
    Nevin
