PETALING JAYA: The Peninsular Malaysia Transport Workers Union (TWU) has asked Datuk Seri Najib Razak to intervene in its dispute with Syarikat Kenderaan Melayu Kelantan Bhd (SKMK) over the sale of pre-paid tickets and recruitment of drivers.
TWU secretary-general Tan Sri Zainal Rampak said he had sent a letter to the prime minister on July 2 and explained to him the bone of contention between both parties.
He said TWU had to seek Najib's help as SKMK had ignored the collective agreement signed with TWU, Human Resource Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam's decision and the Industrial Court's judgement over the dispute.
Speaking at a news conference here today, Zainal said SKMK had engaged a contractor to sell fast-pass or pre-paid tickets and recruit non-local drivers
supplied by Richgroup Intelligence Advisors Sdn Bhd, much to the dismay of its employees.
He said before the fast-pass ticketing system was in placed, tickets were sold by drivers and this enabled them to earn commissions from the sale.
Calling on SKMK to stop the fast-pass ticketing system and sack drivers supplied by Richgroup Intelligence Advisors, he said SKMK should also explain the status of nine employees who had been suspended for taking part in a protest against the company. Bernama
