MTUC picket in Johor Bahru

About 150 protesters from 27 unions are picketing at Kampung Pasir along the Skudai highway.

An equal number of police personnel was present. The picket was headed by the Johor MTUC chairman, Tan Eng Hong, who was also the president of NUBE (National Union of Banking Employees).

They were protesting against two amendments to the Employment Act, relating to overtime payment and allowing companies to outsource labour from third parties rather than employing them directly.
