Dear Members,

Greetings from AMCO,

It has been quite some time that news about our Collective Agreement goes on air. While we understand that members are eagerly awaiting the news on development of the CA, the EXCO also hope that members wait it out patiently as the negotiation is still in progress.

As members are fully aware, many things had taken place in the past few months; fluctuation of oil prices, implementation of GST, devastating impact on potential rising of interest rate by US, clashes between US and China Markets, plummeting down of MYR, Political crises and many more. Unfortunately it happens right during our Collective negotiation. Nevertheless, the EXCO have met the management on many occasions officially and unofficially. Every steps had been taken to secure current benefits as well as trying to get new and improved articles for the members.

For your information, other unions that have concluded their CA are NUBE at 10%, ABOM at 10%, CIMB at 9%. These concluded collective agreements have great implication on the manner of subsequent CA to be concluded, notwithstanding AMCO. However, AMCO have and will still remain persistent and consistent in our plight to a better CA.

Few new articles have been table out which includes, Pilgrimage Leave, Child Care, Cola, amongst others. These articles have been deliberated thoroughly and argued by the EXCO relentlessly. Eventually, the Bank have agreed to look into this proposed new article seriously and to come back with a mandate.

Of course there are also improved articles that were also tabled. Our priority would be the Salary Adjustment, Annual Increment, Refreshment claims, OHA, other allowances, retirement benefits. Rest assured that AMCO is trying to do its very best to put our members at salary scale that is worthy as an executive.

We will get a reply form the management by the end of the year and if all goes well, we should be drawing new salaries in 2016. Meanwhile, to our members out there, EXCO says THANK YOU for your undivided support and be prepared for any instruction from the secretariat. It is also highly important that we recruit as many member as possible. Please look around you for non-members and try your best to invite them to become a member of our large family.

Once again, be patient, stay united, keep your hopes high and pray that the Al Mighty bestow our EXCO with strength, persistency and commitment to concluded the CA amicably.

Thank you.

Zainurin Zainal Abidin

President, AMCO

Selamat Hari Raya 2015

16/07/2015

Assalamulalikum dan Salam Sejahtera kepada semua,

Ahlamdulillah, bersyukur kita kepada Ilahi kerana memberi kita kekuatan mengharung berbagai cabaran disepanjang bulan Ramadhan ini. Kami yakin ramai ahli tertunggu-tunggu ketibaan bulan Syawal yang akan diraikan dengan gembira bersama keluarga tersayang. Dalam masa yang sama, kita tidak lupa juga kepada mereka yang kurang bernasib baik terutama dikalangan ahli kesatuan.

Saudaraku,

Pelbagai peristiwa telah berlaku sepanjang bulan Ramadhan ini seperti kes-kes disiplin, salah laku, pembuangan kerja, ketidakadilan dan juga perubahan organisasi. Di sini, kami ingin mengingatkan sesama kita bahawa sebagai pegawai kelas satu Maybank, kita perlu ada jati diri yang mantap. Kita perlu dan sentiasa ingat bahawa kita adalah penjaga harta pelanggan, oleh itu kami yakin bahawa setiap ahli AMCO perlu berada di dalam keadaan yang cemerlang, peka dan sentiasa menjaga kepentingan pelanggan. Ahli-ahli kesatuan yang menyaksikan sebarang salah laku perlu bertindak segera melalui saluran yang disediakan. Amat malanglah jika ahli kesatuan kurang memberi tumpuan kepada tugas yang akhirnya akan menyebabkan kerugian. Ahli juga perlu amanah kepada diri sendiri dalam melaksanakan tugas harian. Kita perlu menyumbang daya usaha pada tahap tertinggi disamping mendapat apa yang diberi sebagai hak kepada pekerja. Contohnya, seperti kerja lebihan masa, tuntutan elaun lebih masa adalah menjadi hak kita setelah kita bekerja mengikut kadar yang telah ditetapkan. Catatan ini adalah perlu untuk pihak majikan mengenal pasti sebarang ketidak keseimbangan pada proses kerja. Maka, pekerja perlu tuntut dan menyatakan kuantiti kerja yang dilakukan dalam bentuk elaun lebihan masa disamping merakamkan jumlah kerja yang dilakukan seharian. Ini agar kesemua pihak akan faham situasi sebenar dan mengambil langkah sepatutnya untuk menentukan juga mempunyai ‘work life balance’.

Satu lagi situasi yang agak mendatangkan kerisauan kesatuan adalah penutupan beberapa cawangan bank atas dasar langkah pengawalan kos yang lebih efisien. AMCO ingin juga menegaskan bahawa sementara keputusan cara berniaga berada di tangan majikan, pekerja juga perlu diyakinkan bahawa mereka tidak akan hilang pekerjaan. Dalam situasi ekonomi yang tidak menentu, kejatuhan matawang, cukai-cukai baru serta kenaikan harga barang, majikan adal dipertanggungjawabkan untuk tidak menghapuskan pekerjaan yang sedia ada.
Walau apapun yang bakal berlaku, kami yakin bahawa ahli AMCO sentiasa bersedia mengharungnya. Dan menjadi harapan kami agar semua ahli melaporkan sebarang bentuk penyalahan gunaan kuasa dari pihak majikan.

Saudaraku sekelian,

Kami mengambil kesempatan mengucapkan Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri kepada semua ahli-ahli kesatuan. Semoga Ramadhan yang berlalu telah mendewasakan kita dalam ilmu kehidupan dan salam keputusan-keputusan yang bakal kita ambil. Kepada semua yang akan memandu balik ke kampung halaman atau memandu pada Hari Raya, ingat supaya berhenti seketika pabila terlalu letih. Biar kita lewat sedikit asalkan jangan tidak sampai langsung.
Selamat Hari Raya
Maaf Dzahir Batin
Untuk AMCO
Zainurin Hj Zainal Abidin

Appraisal, Balance Score Card and Bonus Distribution

To All members Of AMCO

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

AMCO  received numerous feedbacks and complaints regarding unfair moderation of appraisal ratings and distribution of bonus quantum. Some of the complaints relates to managers and head of departments indiscriminate use of discretion to unfairly moderate appraisal ratings and unjustifiable awarding of lesser bonus quantum for those with the same appraisal ratings. Affected members are requested to file grievances to the General Secretary to enable AMCO to address the issues.
