A leading international bank is set to dismiss 60 low-level staff in Malaysia, claims the National Union of Bank Employees (NUBE).
NUBE secretary-general J Solomon said the bank was trimming down its workforce by offering a voluntary separation scheme (VSS). However, he added, selected workers were bullied into accepting the VSS.
“The bank is attempting to sack 60 of its employees by offering a VSS, which actually isn’t voluntary. Staff members were told to accept the VSS, otherwise they would be transferred.
