PETALING JAYA: The Registrar of Societies (RoS) has invited the Malaysian Trades Union Congress (MTUC) for a meeting on Dec 26, says Datuk Abdul Halim Mansor.
The MTUC president said that this is in line with the request by MTUC to meet with RoS to settle the possible deregistration issue which was announced by the latter on Dec 20.
However, Halim said that MTUC still has yet to receive the Dec 18 suspension notice which RoS had claimed to have sent to them after rescinding an earlier notice, which went viral.
"I was informed the meeting, planned for Dec 24, was postponed.
"This letter for the meeting on Dec 26 showed that RoS had responded to our request to meet with them to discuss the alleged suspension. But we have not received the notice of suspension yet," said Halim.
On Dec 20, the RoS said it had opened an investigation paper into complaints of mismanagement against the trades union federation representing half a million workers in Malaysia.
It then said that it had issued MTUC a notice on Dec 18, under Section 13(2), of Societies Act 1966, which is the notice before the registration of a society is annulled.
The MTUC was given 30 days from the date of the notice to respond as to why it should not be annulled.
