Cuepacs: Don’t pri­va­tise di­etet­ics dept

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

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
