British American Tobacco (M) Bhd Employees Union (BATEU)
We, the undersigned members of the BATEU, wish to express our
dissatisfaction and unhappiness, over the manner the Company carried
out the recent promotion exercise. On the 9th January, 2007, the
company conducted a briefing session and we were told that our
positions are out of the Union’s representation. Although
our job functions remain unchanged, we were told that our job
has been upgraded to management position and that we can no longer
be the members of the Union.
we were given a “new contract” and were forced to
sign without any option to accept or reject the new contract.
We as employees strongly feel that we should be given an option
to exercise our “rights”. We were not even given time
to think over the new offer or discuss this matter with our union
have been the members of the Union ever since we joined the company
and wish to maintain as one. We therefore urge the Union to take
up this matter seriously and assist us to continue our membership
forward to the Union to resolve this matter.
Signed by overwhelming majority of workers in the sales force.
