MTUC nationwide picket

Amidst screams of “tarik balik” some 300 members of the Malaysian Trade Union Congress (MTUC) staged a picket at Jalan Barat, Petaling Jaya on 3rd November 2011.

This is part of the nationwide picket organised by MTUC to protest the proposed amendments to the Employment Act which would affect the job security and rights of workers in Malaysia.

Abdul Halim Mansor, Secretary General of MTUC was on hand to explain the reasons for the picket and said that they will take this matter up to the International Labour Organisation if the Government does not heed their demands.
