KSIEWBSM berjaya mendapat 72% sokongan pekerja RENESAS dalam undi sulit ke arah pengiktirafan
The Electronic Industry Employees Union Western Region, Peninsular Malaysia (EIEUWR)/ Kesatuan Sekerja Industri Elektronik Wilayah Barat Semenjung Malaysia(KSIEWBSM) was victorious in the 'secret ballot' when about 72% of the qualified workers at RENESAS Semiconductor KL Sdn Bhd (formerly known as NEC Semiconductors (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd]voted in favour of the Union. The Union will now be recognized, and soon would be able to begin negotiations for a Collective Bargaining Agreement. The almost 4 year struggle for recognition is over, and we do hope that RENESAS would also do the right thing and reinstate immediately Wan Noorulazhar, the President of the Union.
It would have so much better if employers, like RENESAS, respected worker and trade union rights and immediately accorded recognition to the UNION since 2010 - but sadly, there was resistance to the UNION and thus the need for a 'secret ballot'.
