Malaysia is one of Asia's biggest employers of foreign labour. But recently, cases of deaths, abuse and forced labour have come to light. What is going on? Who is protecting these migrant workers?
KUALA LUMPUR, AUG 18 (Bernama) — Bank Muamalat Malaysia Thursday reemployed three dispatch staff who were retrenched recently, said Chief Operating Officer Haji PeerMohamed Ibramsha.
He told bernama that the reemployment was due to a exparte injunction obtained by the National Union of Bank Employees (NUBE) which disputed the retrenchment.
“As a responsible corporate entity we abide by the court order, but reserve the right to challenge the order at a hearing scheduled for Sept 2,” he added.
Meanwhile, NUBE General-Secretary, J. Solomon said the retrenchment was done against the spirit of the collective agreement the union had with the bank.
He hoped the bank would agree to negotiate rather then resort to court proceedings to settle the matter amicably.
