Govt urged to ‘fast track’ national port authority

THE Malaysian Trades Union Congress (MTUC) yesterday called on the government to expedite the setting up of the National Port Authority (NPA).

The purpose of the NPA would be to oversee and streamline the operations of all ports in the country.

The NPA could, among other things, help cut out unhealthy competition among ports by avoiding a duplication of services and facilities, said MTUC vice-president A. Balasubramaniam, who is also the secretary of the Union of Employees of Port Ancillary Services Suppliers.

He said the NPA could also assist in creating uniformity in the wages and terms and conditions of work for the 30,000 workers at the various ports. – Bernama
