20,000 at Malaysia Airlines await termination

Published on : Monday, May 25, 2015

A Malaysia Airlines air stewardess wipes her eyes during a memorial for victims of MH370 and MH17 at Malaysia Airlines headquarters in Kuala LumpurThis week is going to be the most anxious week for 20,000 Malaysia Airlines workers as they await termination and re-employment letters in a matter of few days.



Malaysia Airlines, one of the biggest government-linked companies (GLC) will be terminating its entire workforce to start afresh as a smaller airline with a regional focus rather than international. No GLC in Malaysia has ever sacked nearly everyone. This is supposedly going to be the biggest job termination in Malaysia.

However, this is believed to be a part of the last-ditch effort to remake MAS, saddled with debts for several years now, even before the twin tragedies of MH370 and MH17.

About two-thirds of the 20,000 staff will be offered jobs with new conditions. It was reported earlier that 6,000 staff would be axed but sources now say that in effect, it is that 6,000 roles that could be cut and some of those roles could be done by more than one staff. So sources say the final number of staff asked to go could be over 8,000, but in stages over a year.

    This is so very sad and it is not their fault,Once a World class airline and truly respectable over the last 40 years to see it gone off the radar literally makes me depressed just to write this,Why Don’t they disclose to the World what happened to the missing Airliner,they know and we know they know,The World knows that it is impossible to loose an aeroplane in the skies which goes off the global tracking systems,One day the Airline will make it back in the skies my heartfelt apologies and good luck to those concerned
