MALAYSIA:::MTUC Welcomes Selangor’s Decision to Provide Land to Build a Training Centre

SHAH ALAM, 2 May: The Malaysian Trade Union Congress (MTUC) welcomes the decision by the Selangor Government to allocate a piece of land in the state for the purpose of establishing a training centre.
Its Deputy President, Abdullah Sani Abdul Hamid, said that the State Government’s kindness is very satisfying as MTUC has been waiting for over 30 years.
He said that the training centre has been long awaited by MTUC as they want to train and educate employees in forming employee leadership.
“It is a very good thing. Previously, the former Prime Minister, Tun Abdul Razak Hussein, only gave an educational fund of RM250,000.
“But this time goes down in history because Selangor is giving us three acres of land for the development of a training centre,” he said when contacted by Selangor Kini today.
Abdullah said that they have proposed to the Federal Government to provide land, but it was not agreed upon.

“We cannot get land, especially around Kuala Lumpur or Selangor,” he said.
He hopes that with the establishment of the training centre, it would further improve the training of workers, especially knowledge in the legal aspect.
On May 1, the Chief Minister, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, allocated a plot of land with an area of three acres to build the MTUC training centre.
He said that the new decision will be discussed further with the Selangor Land and Mines Office (SLMO) to identify a suitable location.
He said that the approval was given in accordance with the State Government’s mission to develop human capital and highly skilled workers.
Meanwhile, the MTUC President, Mohd Khalid Atan, also praised Abdul Khalid’s action, which is seen as being concerned about the workers’ and the people’s problems.
“Today goes down in history, when a leader like the Chief Minister consents to give land to MTUC and this has never happened before.
“We are very proud to have a Chief Minister who is concerned about the problems of workers and the people like himself,” he said
