MyAirline: Selangor police receive 44 reports over salary arrearsAHMAD ISMADI ISMAIL
SHAH ALAM - Selangor police received 44 reports from employees of MyAirline which had suspended its operation since Oct 12 due to alleged salary arrears.
Selangor police chief Datuk Hussein Omar Khan said that the reports were lodged from Oct 1 to 1pm today.
"Subang Jaya District Police Headquarters (IPD) received the highest number of reports on the issue which are 18, IPD KLIA (seven), IPD Sepang and IPD Petaling Jaya (six).
"IPD Serdang (three), IPD Shah Alam (two) while one report each at IPD Kajang and IPD Kuala Langat," he said.
Hussein said that the reports came about following the airline staff's dissatisfaction for not being paid.
"The case is referred to the court for the complainants to take civil actions," he said.
Yesterday, the media reported that about 20 MyAirline workers had lodged a police report at IPD Sepang together with the Malaysian Trade Union Congress (MTUC) secretary-general Kamarul Baharin Mansor.
Kamarul reportedly said that the police report was filed as MyAirline had allegedly failed to make salary payments and contributions to the Employees' Provident Fund (EPF) and Perkeso since May.
The suspension of its operation on Oct 12 which was said to have come from financial pressure had also left over 500 of its employees questioning the status of their service in the company that had its first flight on Dec 1 last year.
