PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Trades Union Congress (MTUC) has offered to co-operate with employers and the Labour Department to resolve grievances faced by foreign workers.

Its president Khalid Atan said this was because the MTUC wanted industrial harmony maintained in the country.

He was commenting on the alleged rioting by 800 Nepali workers at the JYC HDD Technology Sdn Bhd factory at the Kelapa Sawit Industrial Estate in Johor last week.

A similar incident was reported at the company’s branch at the Tebrau Industrial Park, where 1,500 workers, unhappy over the company’s handling of a worker’s welfare, threw pieces of metal and other items from their four-storey hostel and tipped over a van.

Khalid said the MTUC had received complaints the workers were ill-treated and some were not paid their wages for four months. — Bernama
