Joint Statement – 3/12/2013
MAS Must Immediately Revoke Suspension of Union President Ismail Nasaruddin
Worker Right Issue Should Be Resolved By Negotiations Not ‘Union Busting’
We, the 40 undersigned civil society groups, trade unions and organizations are disturbed by the news that Malaysian Airlines, a government linked company, has suspended the president of the National Union of Flight Attendants Malaysia (NUFAM), Ismail Nasaruddin in connection with a statements made to the media by the Union, which amongst others suggested that MAS’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Ahmad Jauhari Yahya who was appointed in 2011, should resign. Ismail was allegedly suspended without allowances with immediate effect starting Nov 8 following a news report quoting him that was published on the same day.
