Omit us from the min wage policy: PPKKM


KUALA LUMPUR: The Security Services Association of Malaysia (PPKKM) has requested to the government not to involve its members in the minimum wage policy due to be announced soon.

Its president Datuk Shaheen Mirza Habib said this was to avoid stakeholders in the industry from suffering losses.

“We have already implemented an initial minimum wage ruling made mandatory for the security workers by the  government beofre this. This was only made possible as the  provided the extra budget of RM 270 million,” Shaheen said  at the PPKKM’s 22nd General Meeting today.

He made the request through the Home Ministry.

He said that the money was channelled to PPKKM to  support the increasing prices of security services contracts in  the public sector.
