MTUC urges govt to provide data on errant contractors

THE government is urged to provide data on errant contractors to enable payment of minimum wage adjustments, including salary arrears, to be made directly to affected workers. 

Malaysian Trades Union Congress (MTUC) secretary-general Kamarul Baharin Mansor said salary arrears reached RM3,600 per government service contract worker since the new minimum wage rate of RM1,500 was implemented in May last year.
