行使砂移民自主权 保障砂人民利益

Posted: 04 Aug 2016 10:16 PM PDT

(古晋8日讯)民主行动党古晋市国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙州议员张健仁呼吁砂州政府行使砂州移民自主权,以确保国油集团在砂州的营业和运作,增聘砂州子女。
张健仁指出,早在2014年11月,阿德南在砂州议会做总结时,告知州议会,国油已同意在人力资源发展及教育方面,将确保有更多的砂州人参与其在砂州的营业运作。
张氏表示遗憾,1年又8个月已过去了,国油在砂州的营业运作上,还是没有给予砂州子女任何的特别优待。 根据最近所透露的数字,国油集团在砂州的各个营业中,高级管理层的雇员中只有区区的39%是砂州人,而中级管理层的雇员中,砂州人也只占了46%。
张氏说,但是,当国油要进行公司改组,其许多有经验的砂州员工,却被辞退,也不被给予机会到另外的部门继续工作。
"看来,阿德南在报章所讲的话,还有砂州议会的议决案,联邦国阵政府根本就不当一回事。 我们拿不回20%的石油天然气开采税。 国油给予砂州子民的在其砂州营业的就业机会也没有明显的增加。"
张氏也说,砂州政府应该要以急迫感,因为砂州的石油储量也日益减少。再过20年,砂州也没有石油了。 到时才来争取,为时已晚。
他指出,所有那些在国油的砂州营业运作做工的西马人,要进入砂拉越,都必须事先得到砂州政府所发出的移民和工作准证。 既然联邦政府如此漠视砂州议会的议决,砂州政府应该暂时吊销这些人的移民和工作准证。
"阿德南在州选时,就能够为了国阵的利益,禁止多名反对党的领袖进入砂拉越。 那为何他不能使用同样的移民自主权,来保障砂州人民的利益。 难道移民自主权,只是用来保护国阵,而非用来保护砂州人民?"
张氏呼吁砂州政府设定70%的目标给国油,限定国油在砂州的营业,各层次的员工,砂州人应占至少70%。 在国油达到这目标之前,国油在砂州全体的西马职员的移民和工作准证暂时被吊销,至到国油能符合这目标。
张氏说,既然砂州有移民自主权,那州政府就应该好好利用这移民自主权来保护砂州人民,而不是,只是用这项自主权来保护砂州国阵和他们的朋党。

DAP Urged Adenan to Use Immigration Power to Ensure Greater Sarawakian Participation in PETRONAS’ Management in Sarawak

Posted: 04 Aug 2016 09:50 PM PDT

As early as November, 2014 in Sarawak DUN, Adenan informed the DUN that Petronas has agreed for more Sarawak participation in terms of human resource, education and technical training. 

Yet, when it comes to employment by Petronas for its operations in Sarawak, Sarawakians are still not given the priority. 

One year and 8 months have passed since Adenan's announcement in DUN, majority of the senior posts in Petronas's operation in Sarawak are still filled by non-Sarawakians. In the statistics recently disclosed, only 39% of the management positions and 46% of the middle management positions are filled by Sarawakians in Petronas's operation in Sarawak.

On the other hand, when it comes to Petronas's restructuring exercise, Petronas is quick to retrench experienced Sarawakian workers without giving consideration for re-deployment of these workers to other jobs within the Petronas Group. 

It seems that despite the repeated calls of Adenan and the resolution passed in Sarawak DUN in May, 2014, the Federal BN Government is still adamant in keeping to itself, the major chunk of the benefits derived from the petroleum production in Sarawak.

We did not get the 20% Oil and Gas Royalties. The number of Sarawakian employed by the Petronas for its operations in Sarawak, especially at the managerial and middle managerial levels, still leaves much to be desire.

Given the depleting oil reserves, the clock is ticking against Sarawak in general. Adenan and the State BN Government should not wait till such time when there is no more oil reserves in Sarawak before they really assert the State's rights.

For all those West Malaysian holding positions in Petronas' operation in Sarawak, they require immigration and work permits to enter Sarawak. The power to issue work permits and immigration permits lie within the sole power of the State Government.

Since Petronas and the Federal Government is paying no heed to the Sarawak DUN's resolution, the State Government should withhold these work and immigration permits to prohibit the Petronas' management and middle management level employees from entering Sarawak.

When the State Government can be quick to ban the entry of Opposition politicians from entering Sarawak during the State Elections to protect the BN's interest, there is no reason why such powers cannot be exercised to protect the interests of Sarawakians in general when it comes to job opportunities for locals. 

DAP call upon the State Government to insist on a target of at least 70% of the management and middle management level in Petronas' operation in Sarawak to be Sarawakians. DAP further calls upon the State Government to revoke the work and entry permits of the present Petronas management and middle management West Malaysian employees until such time when the target is reached.

It is only by imposing such strong action that we can get Petronas to accede to our request for more opportunities to be given to Sarawak. Otherwise, all Adenan's talks about protecting Sarawakians' interests will come to naught, as shown in the 20% Oil and Gas Royalties demand.
