The MAS Act which was tabled to Parliament on 26 November is seen as a discrimination act againts the employees and their Trade Unions. AKTA MAS 2014 ( MALAYSIAN AIRLINE SYSTEM BERHAD )
KESATUAN KEBANGSAAN ANAK-ANAK KAPAL KABIN MALAYSIA Reg:1089
The MAS Act which was tabled to Parliament on 26 November is seen as a
discrimination act againts the employees and their Trade Unions
Judging the contexts in the MAS Act, Khazanah Nasional’s proposal to adopt the MAS
Act have raise many doubts and questions on how employees will be unable to file any
Industrial disputes against the airline itself.
It is seen to steer employee’s and its Unions off the normal legal process in filing any
Industrial disputes against the carrier. There are also several clauses to provide
protection and to also over throw the current legal process which has been recognised
by law under the Trade Union Act and Industrial Relations Act.
The is an absolute picture of what MAS Act is painting. Other then that, it will also help
protect any liabilities which third parties may claim against Malaysia Airlines Berhad.
NUFAM wantst Khazanah to furnish the National Union a copy of this Act before it can
even be tabled to Parliament.
If Parliament endorses something of this sort, it will show imbalance and injustice to all
MAS employees and their respective Union’s per se. We cannot allow something of this
sort to slip through as the livelihood of these employees are involved in the restructuring
process and their future will be at stake. We cannot allow something which has never
been done before to past through in benefit of those in the business This will be an
absolute challenge to the current practices and laws of the Industrial Relations.
