Nube blasts Dr Subra’s tenure as HR minister

The former human resources minister should not have consented to in-house unions according to the bank employees union.

KUALA LUMPUR: National Union of Bank Employees (Nube) is disappointed with the actions taken by former Human Resources Minister Dr S Subramaniam when he was in office.

The union today said that Subramaniam’s credential as the Human Resources Minister was tarnished when he favored the formation of in-house unions.

“Subramaniam acted adversely by condoning the actions of the Industrial Relations Department’s director general to form in-house unions very speedily,” said Nube’s secretary general J Solomon during an interview at the union’s headquarters.

Subramaniam who is also MIC deputy president was Human Resources Minister from March 18, 2008 until May 5, 2013. He is currently the Health Minister and Segamat MP.

Subramaniam gave approval to the formation of in-house unions in Maybank which was detrimental against Nube in 2010.

According to Article 6 of the Nube – Malaysian Commercial Banking Association’s collective agreement, Nube is the sole negotiating body representing non – executive bank employees.

“What is the intention of the Human Resources Ministry? They were trying to divide and weaken the union when the minister is empowered to cancel the registration of the in-house unions.

“We were forced to spend RM2 million in legal fees over a period of two years to fight off the registration of the in-house unions,” Solomon said.

Solomon added that Subramaniam also declined to meet Nube officials to discuss issues related to bank employees during his tenure back then.

Nevertheless, Nube has no complaints against the current minister, Richard Riot Jaem.

“He has not made any detrimental statement against Nube. We hope he is fair to us,” said the Nube leader.

He added that Nube has written a letter to meet Riot and hopes to convey “our side of the story instead of his biased officials”.

Riot is SUPP deputy president and Serian MP.
