Datuk Hj Shamsuddin Bardan, executive director, Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF)

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Trades Union Congress (MTUC) is at loggerheads with the Human Resources Ministry and the Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) over the proposal for the ratification of a convention that would allow all workers, including migrants, the right to join and form unions.

Currently, migrants workers are allowed to join existing unions established by Malaysian workers but Section 28 of the Trade Unions Act prevents them from establishing a union.
