Flight Attendants Want To Be Postal Voters

BANGI: The National Union of Flight Attendants Malaysia (NUFAM) want the government to consider allowing cabin crew from MAS, Air Asia and Fire Fly to cast early or postal votes in the general election.
Its president Ismail Nasaruddin Abd Wahab claimed that during the last general election, 5,000 cabin crew could not vote due to work commitments.
"We have about 5,000 cabin crew who could not vote because they were working. So we request the government to categorise them as postal voters just like media pratitioners and national security forces personnel," he said in a dialogue session with Deputy Minister in Prime Minister's Department Ahmad Maslan here.
The dialogue also raised issues faced by workers in the airline industry which covered salary increments, the rights and future of flight crew, retirement, female workers' rights and assistance for cabin crew who were single mothers.
Ahmad Maslan received the memorandum and assured that it would be brought to the attention of the Prime Minister - Bernama
