PETALING JAYA: MTUC secretary-general G. Rajasekaran has urged affiliates, which claim that he has issued inconsistent statements and taken sides with deputy president Mohd Shafie BP Mammal, to prove their allegations.
I stand by whatever I say and their allegations are unwarranted and uncalled for because they have no evidence.
I have said that Mohd Shafie does not automatically become president once Zainal steps down because the general council will elect and it can elect anybody. Prove where I have been inconsistent otherwise it's an abuse of the process,'' he said yesterday.
He was responding to news reports that five MTUC affiliates wanted to table a no-confidence motion against him, for allegedly failing to defuse the power struggle between congress president Senator Zainal Rampak and Mohd Shafie.
The unions are the All-Malayan Estates Staff Union, National Union of Commercial Workers, Union of Beverage Industry Workers, Klang Port Management Staff Union and Printing Industries Employees Union.
