劉鎮東:確保騷亂不重演‧外勞政策須重探討

(柔佛‧新山5日訊)針對JCY廠房外勞騷亂事件,人力資源部長拿督斯里里察烈昨日建議按外勞員工比例,委任能操外勞母語的管工,但行動黨柔州主席劉鎮東認為前者有失部長代表勞方爭取利益的義務,反之應徹查原委,從中重全面新思考我國的外勞政策。

劉鎮東認為,人力資源部長的責任應是代表勞工,去維護和平衡勞資雙方的利益。他表示,我國政府應改設立皇家或獨立調查委員會去徹查外勞騷亂事件。

“發生在此廠房的事件也可能在其他廠房重演,政府應改調查廠方是否有違反人權,或是情緒、福利管理不當的行為。”

他說,此次事件是自2002年森美蘭發生紡織廠外勞騷亂事件後最嚴重的一次。他強調,調查不僅為了當事廠方,我國政府有必要從調查中探討外勞政策,確保其他廠方不會重蹈覆轍。
