Ever since government implemented Movement Control Order (MCO) on 18 March, Malaysians are spending more on online shopping than usual. Pos Laju reported that they are receiving over 60,000 parcel every day and are working tirelessly to ensure all parcels are delivered in a timely manner.
Many have shared photos of how our Abang PosLaju carried tonnes of parcel, rain or shine on social media and they think that all employees deserve a raise or a bonus. However, Pos Malaysia in a press statement has stated that they won’t give bonus due to the tough times.
Pos Laju’s operations have been impacted due to the Covid-19 pandemic
“While there is an increase in parcel volume throughout the MCO, Pos Malaysia’s other businesses namely mail, international parcels, Pos Aviation, Pos Logistics and others have been affected. Despite this, Pos Malaysia continues to protect the livelihood of over 15,000 front liners and operational support employees and ensure that their needs are prioritised,” it said in a press statement.
Pos Laju has assured that their employees’ future are protected
Pos Laju, however has assured that their employees’ future are protected and they won’t reduce salary, job cuts or other drastic measures. They will continue to protect the livelihood of over 15,000 frontliners and operational support employees and ensure that their needs are prioritised.
Despite the surge of parcel volume during MCO, the truth is the business is far from good. It is not enough to cushion the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has caused on their overall business.
“Pos Malaysia is currently undergoing a transformation process to turn the business around. As our transformation plan progresses and situation has improved, we will ensure better rewards for our people. At the same time, while the business is adjusting to the new normal, we continue to carry out our responsibility and serve the country as an essential service provider during this challenging time.”
Some M’sians felt as if Pos Laju isn’t doing enough for its employees
Last year, the company paid out a bonus of RM 1,000. Sadly, this year there is no bonus. There were also other rumour saying that the employees’ basic salary has been the same for the past 20 years. Some Malaysians felt that it’s time to boycott Pos Malaysia’s service and encourage their workers to go on strike until they take care of their employees’ welfare.
