Following the recent hearing at the Fair Work Commission, the ASU has received the attached letter from Malaysia Airlines regarding the transfer of business to Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB).
The Malaysia Airlines representatives confirmed that MAS employees will transfer employment to MAB from the 1st of September 2015, and that existing employee conditions and entitlements will continue to apply. It was also confirmed that the company will continue to recognise employee’s continuous service and all accrued leave as of 1 September.
Importantly, the Malaysia Airlines Enterprise Agreement 2013 will continue to cover transferring employees, as per the requirements of the Fair Work Act.
The ASU will continue to engage with the company and report back to members when any new information becomes available. At the Fair Work hearing Malaysia committed to providing the ASU with weekly updates on the company restructure.
