Demonstrators protest with big-character posters. Members of the National Union of Bank Employees (NUBE) gathered in front of a foreign bank building in Kuala Lumpur on Monday (6th) afternoon to protest against the bank group’s withdrawal from the local retail banking business, but did not fulfill the spirit of the contract and did not follow the labor contract to compensate employees. About 350 people participated in the protest, each holding big-character posters condemning the banking group. They urged Anwar, the prime minister who is also the finance minister, to uphold the concept of a prosperous Malaysia and stand up for the bank employees who are most affected by the B40 and M40 groups. aid. Solomon, general secretary of the National Bank Employees Union, pointed out that Malaysian employees have worked for the bank group for 63 years. However, as an employer, the group only cares about its own interests. After withdrawing from the local consumer banking business, it abandoned its employees to fend for itself. Respect the rights and interests of employees. The banking group did not pay any severance package or compensation to any of its employees. However, under the intervention of the Bank of Korea earlier in South Korea, the bank paid 7 years of salary to the affected employees as compensation. Security guards strictly guard the bank building to guard against violence. "Why is Malaysia doing the opposite? Because Bank Negara and the Ministry of Finance have not handled this matter rigorously. Just as the banking group decided to divest and take away the wealth and benefits it earned, it turned a blind eye to the fate of its employees." In addition, A. Karuna, assistant to the general secretary of the National Bank Employees Union, disclosed that the banking group has announced its withdrawal from consumer banking in Asia, Europe and the Middle East, including 13 markets in Malaysia since April 2021.
