PETALING JAYA: PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli has called for the National Wage Consultative Council (NWCC) to be upgraded to an independent commission with wider powers to determine wage increases.

He said the NWCC was set up to tackle the minimum wage issue and, due to this limitation, it had been unable to resolve the wage distortions in the country.

“To ensure equitable wage increases that match the cost of living, we have to correct the distortions which are suppressing wages,” he said today at a media conference at Invoke Malaysia which was also carried live on Facebook.

He said he had forwarded his proposal to labour unions throughout the country and would discuss their feedback at a seminar which he would organise.

Rafizi quoted a report from international management consultancy Korn Ferry Hay Group which showed that Malaysia’s net wage hikes, after deducting rate of inflation, were among the lowest in Southeast Asia at 2%.

In contrast, the rate in Thailand was 5.9% and in Vietnam, 4.5%.

Rafizi said the present method of determining wage rises was ineffective because labour unions were viewed as below employers in status, resulting in the interests of employees not being prioritised.

“The employers have greater negotiating power in a situation where the unions’ influence is limited.

“If the negotiations had been effective, surely our wage increases would have been comparable to other countries in the region with economic standing equal to ours,” he said.

He referred to Cuepacs’ recent call to the government to give public employees a 3% salary hike in the 2018 Budget.

“Because of the unequal status, every year public employees are forced to beg the prime minister for a little salary increase, when it is actually their right,” he said.

Rafizi suggested the introduction of a policy to fix the rate of salary increases each year jointly by the government, employers and workers to ensure fairness for all parties.

Under this policy, he said, the net salary increases would be announced by all three parties who must abide by the decision.

“If it is made a law, then no worker will be left behind, whether in the public or private sectors,” he said.

PETALING JAYA: Naib presiden PKR Rafizi Ramli telah meminta Majlis Perundingan Upah Kebangsaan (NWCC) untuk dinaik taraf kepada suruhanjaya bebas dengan kuasa yang lebih luas untuk menentukan peningkatan gaji.

Beliau berkata NWCC ditubuhkan untuk menyelesaikan isu gaji minimum dan, disebabkan oleh had ini, ia tidak dapat menyelesaikan gangguan gaji di negara ini.

"Untuk memastikan kenaikan gaji yang saksama yang sepadan dengan kos sara hidup, kita perlu membetulkan gangguan yang menghalang upah," katanya pada sidang media di Invoke Malaysia yang turut dibawa secara langsung di Facebook.

Beliau berkata beliau telah mengemukakan usulnya untuk membuat kesatuan buruh di seluruh negara dan akan membincangkan maklum balas mereka pada seminar yang akan diadakannya.

Rafizi memetik laporan daripada konsultasi pengurusan antarabangsa Korn Ferry Hay Group yang menunjukkan kenaikan gaji bersih Malaysia, selepas menolak kadar inflasi, adalah antara yang terendah di Asia Tenggara pada 2%.

Sebaliknya, kadar di Thailand adalah 5.9% dan di Vietnam, 4.5%.

Rafizi berkata kaedah penentuan kenaikan gaji adalah tidak berkesan kerana kesatuan pekerja dilihat sebagai di bawah majikan dalam status, menyebabkan kepentingan pekerja tidak diberi keutamaan.

"Majikan mempunyai kuasa perundingan yang lebih besar dalam situasi di mana pengaruh kesatuan terhad.

"Sekiranya rundingan itu berkesan, pastinya kenaikan gaji kita akan setanding dengan negara-negara lain di rantau ini dengan kedudukan ekonomi sama dengan kita," katanya.

Beliau merujuk kepada panggilan Cuepacs baru-baru ini kepada kerajaan untuk memberi pekerja awam kenaikan gaji 3% dalam Belanjawan 2018.

"Kerana status yang tidak sama rata, pekerja awam setiap tahun dipaksa memohon perdana menteri untuk kenaikan gaji sedikit, apabila ia benar," katanya.

Rafizi mencadangkan pengenalan dasar untuk menetapkan kadar kenaikan gaji setiap tahun secara bersama oleh kerajaan, majikan dan pekerja untuk memastikan keadilan bagi semua pihak.

Di bawah dasar ini, beliau berkata kenaikan gaji bersih akan diumumkan oleh ketiga-tiga pihak yang mesti mematuhi keputusan itu.

"Jika ia dibuat undang-undang, maka tiada pekerja akan ditinggalkan, sama ada dalam sektor awam atau swasta," katanya.
