Cuepacs: Don’t privatise dietetics dept
KUALA LUMPUR: The Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) hopes the dietetics and food services departments at government hospitals are not privatised.
Its president, Datuk Azih Muda, said the proposal, if implemented, would affect the welfare of more than 2,000 food handling assistants and dietetics staff at hospitals.
Cuepacs is worried that such a move would result in hospital kitchens, which prepare food for patients, being staffed with foreign workers and that there would be a hike in hospital fees. – Bernama
