A twenty-member discourse was held following Standard Chartered Bank’s decision to close its Taiping Branch and offer Voluntary Separation Scheme (VSS) to all workers.
Though SCB initially issued the VSS without notifying NUBE; SCB immediately met us on 29 November 2019 to iron out the VSS.
The discussion with members was also to address the one-way communication done by SCB to the workers on the VSS and other issues affecting member. The members also rejected the VSS.
The discussions were deep and members expressed their concerns and difficulties faced.
NUBE will raise the issues with SCB with an aim to resolve it amicably.
SCB also a British bank seems to more responsible compared to the errant HSBC Bank.
The meeting was organized by the Leadership of NUBE KLSP with the presence of Committees from Perak and SMJ accompanying the members.
