Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) Systems


Causing Loss Of Employment For
Many Workers,
Government Should Protect
Human Workers Welfare and Security
MTUC is disappointed with the loss of jobs for workers at toll booths,
by reason of automation or the electronic toll collection (ETC) system. Many local workers, especially women workers have lost their
jobs by this move by highway toll operators. The Malaysian government failed to protect employment of workers, when these companies choose to do away with human workers in favor of automation.
It must also be noted despite the existence of Smartcard and
Touch n Go lanes at toll booths, a large number of people still used
the cash payment lanes. This also was used by taxis and other vehicles that were charged different rates compared to normal users. For
many workers still, employers still do insist on receipts before reimbursement for travel is paid.
Pre-paid cards only benefit one travel card companies, being
Touch n Go, and for many low waged workers whose regular income
is also uncertain, by reason of the unchecked increase of precarious
employments in Malaysia and the growing increase of loss of regular
employments, prefer the pay as you use method.
This gives the worker real access and control to the money
in hand. He prefers not to pay in advance money that is effectively
stuck and irretrievable with ease in your Touch n Go cards. This preference can also be seen by many in Malaysia who still avoid regular
auto-payment methods, preferring rather to make cash payments
when the bill arrives. Likewise, the preference to use pre-paid, rather
than being obligated to pay higher fixed rates for their telephony
needs
Malaysian government need to ensure that employment opportunities are not lost by reason of automation or otherwise, especially where it concerns local workers, more so in town and rural areas. MTUC urges the government to reverse or restrict this current
move by highway operators to replace human workers in favor of
automation.

Naza Automotive Manufacturing


berhentikan 300 pekerja

Kira-kira 300 pekerja syarikat pengeluar kereta Naza Automotive Manufacturing (NAM) Sdn Bhd diberhentikan kerja
hari ini selepas jualan kenderaan jatuh tahun ini sejak pengenalan Cukai Barang dan Perkhidmatan (GST) pada
April lalu.
Pemberhentian tersebut melibatkan 255 kakitangan, 30 Jawatankuasa NAM dan selebihnya kakitangan pentadbiran. Kesemua kakitangan yang diberhentikan itu diraikan dalam satu majlis perpisahan yang diadakan di Dewan
Seri Zaleha di Gurun Kedah. Dalam satu atur cara majlis program yang dikirimkan kepada The Malaysian Insider,
majlis perpisahan diadakan hari ini turut disertai Ketua Pegawai Operasi NAM Roslan Abd Ghani dan ucapan pegawai Jabatan Tenaga Kerja.
Semasa majlis sama, semua kakitangan juga diberi surat pemberhentian kerja. The Malaysian Insider cuba
menghubungi ibu pejabat NAM di Kedah bagi mendapatkan pengesahan mengenainya, bagaimanapun gagal
mendapat sebarang maklum balas.
NAM merupakan salah sebuah syarikat pengeluar kereta di bawah Kumpulan Naza yang memulakan operasi pada
Mei 2004. Menurut maklumat daripada laman rasminya, NAM memiliki 1,000 tenaga kerja dan menjalankan kerja
pemasangan kereta Peugeot dan Kia untuk pasaran tempatan dan luar negara.
Jualan kenderaan keseluruhan pada Julai tahun ini susut kepada 58,646 unit daripada 60,269 unit yang dicatatkan
pada bulan yang sama pada 2014. Persatuan Automotif Malaysia (MAA) berkata jumlah yang rendah itu disebabkan jualan kurang memberangsangkan dalam segmen kenderaan penumpang dan komersial.
Jualan kenderaan penumpang pada Julai merosot kepada 52,636 unit berbanding 53,576 unit pada bulan yang
sama tahun lepas, manakala jualan kenderaan komersial turun kepada 6,010 unit daripada 6,693 unit sebelum ini.
Dari Januari hingga Julai, jualan kenderaan keseluruhan susut kepada 380,830 unit berbanding 393,425 unit bagi
tempoh yang sama tahun lepas, kata MAA yang dipetik dalam laman rasminya.
MAA sebelum ini juga meramalkan jualan kereta tahun ini bakal menyusut akibat pelaksanaan GST kerana orang
ramai mengambil sikap tunggu dan lihat. 27 Ogos, 2015.

Index to measure real inflation!


The MTUC would like to invite the Minister of Human Resources and his officers to discuss workers issues in the
country in view of the deteriorating economic conditions in
the country. Theres also a need to handle the political
and economic issues that are fast dragging the country
down.

A big concern is the recent report that foreign


investors may pull out another USD1 billion out of the
bond market this week as the bonds mature. Its really
bad that investor confidence was weakening and where
this was being attributed to political issues. SecretaryGeneral N. Gopal Krishnan said that the government
needs to do something drastic to overcome this issue.
Apart from the weakening foreign investor confidence, the
morale of workers in the country, especially Malaysians,
are also being affected.
We are fast losing trust in the governments ability to handle matters transparently and in the interest of
the people.
Also, in these times, the MTUC would like the government
to declare whether foreign workers are still being brought
into the country, said Gopal in his statement. The Ministry of Human Resources should make an open declaration of the numbers.

The union was expressing its concern on the ongoing economic and political issues facing the country.
With the ringgit depreciating against major currencies,
the cost of imports have gone up and as a direct consequence of this, there has been a further rise in the cost of
living.
The economic figures used such as inflation and the
Consumer Price Index (CPI) does not reflect the real rise
in the cost of living.
Gopal prefers to use the Mamak Stall Index to
measure real inflation. Just compare prices at the
mamak stalls over the last one year. When other essentials such as rent, schooling for children, transport etc are
also taken into account, Malaysian workers especially
those from the lower income group are badly affected.
The union charged that jobs are being impacted
in the current economic climate and the rate of retrenchment has been rising. Employers are also taking advantage of the situation through various means. The government, through the Ministry of Human Resources,
should intervene to ensure that employers are not abusing the system. PS MTUC 1 Oct 2015
