PETALING JAYA: The Malaysia Airlines Employees Union has pledged its support for the restructuring of the airline, saying it would work towards ensuring its impact would be mitigated with compassionate packages for those leaving MAS.

As for employees who stayed on, the union hoped that there would be “attractive packages and terms of conditions”.

In a statement yesterday, its president Alias Aziz said the union was grateful for the setting up of the Corporate Development Centre (CDC), which would provide re-skilling and placement services for employees who were leaving the airline.

“Maseu also hopes that employees who join the new MAS will be given appropriate flexibility in adjusting to new demands and requirements,” he added.

Alias said the union wanted the employee migration to be conducted in stages so that the staff would have sufficient time to cope with the transition.

Maseu, he said, acknowledged that tough measures were necessary to save MAS, including changes in the workforce.

“Maseu would like to reiterate its support for the restructuring of MAS and in-coming chief executive officer and managing director Christoph Mueller,” he said.

Mueller, who was previously chief executive of Aer Lingus, the national carrier of Ireland, takes over on May 1.
