SUBANG JAYA: The National Union of Flight Attendants Malaysia (Nufam) today questioned why it had taken the human resources ministry two years to decide not to refer the cases of 3,500 retrenched Malaysia Airlines workers to the Industrial Court.
Nufam president Ismail Nasaruddin, responding to a comment by Human Resources Minister Richard Riot Jaem, said they had been caught off guard due to a lack of communication between the ministry, the union and the former workers.
“Has the ministry informed and advised the ex-workers? They have not received the letters. There is no information at all pertaining to this.
“It is sad that a HR minister took two years to decide cases will not be referred to the Industrial Court,” he said in a press conference today, adding that the cases had been filed in 2015.
Ismail had previously questioned the delay by the human resources ministry in referring the cases of 3,500 Malaysia Airlines workers who were laid off to the Industrial Court. Read more
