PETALING JAYA, Oct 25 (Bernama) -- The Malaysian Trades Union Congress (MTUC) will not seek the assistance of political parties for its present campaign of opposing some of the amendments to the Employment Act 1955, said its president Mohamad Khalid Atan.
Maintaining that the congress was completely apolitical, Mohamad Khalid said: "The MTUC affiliates are capable of conducting their own campaign for the benefit of their members."
He told Bernama Tuesday that the proposed nationwide picket on Nov 3 to protest against some of the amendments were within the law because the proposed changes would affect workers directly.
"MTUC's protest is nothing but a legitimate campaign to make lawmakers and the public aware of the dire consequences to workers should the amendments be adopted," he said.
Mohamad Khalid hoped the members of parliament and senators would carefully deliberate on the amendments before making a final decision.
The MUTC's main grouse is that the amendments in their present form would provide loopholes for employers to hire workers through third party agents.
"Through this system, the workers will have no permanent employer, thus exposing them to abuse ," he said.
