Forum: Tripartism approach needed to shaping rules in using AI for work

In a forum, National Instructors and Coaches Association (NICA) President Adrian Chiang Yick Keet and Protem President of Visual, Audio, Creative Content Professionals Association (VICPA) James Tan replied to a forum letter titled “Workers could be the ones to regulate AI” published on 4 Oct, and shared that VICPA and NICA support the writer’s view that unions and workers can and should play pivotal roles in shaping the rules relating to the use of artificial intelligence (AI) for work.

NICA and VICPA stated that AI is fast-evolving and can challenge freelancers and self-employed persons (FSEs) in the creative field and the arts that VICPA and NICA represent. The writers urged the Government, trade associations and buyer representatives to partner with VICPA and NICA to co-develop a framework that guides workers – FSEs and employees – and businesses in the arts and creative sectors in adopting AI. The writers added that VICPA and NICA would also want to tap insights into developing a training roadmap for their members, highlighting that the unions want to push for more training support for FSEs who want to upskill in AI and other future-oriented skill sets.
