WORKERS REJECT POLITICIAN'S IRRESPONSIBLE CALL FOR TRUCKER STRIKE AT PORT KLANG

2021-12-28

A Malaysian politician has been slammed as ?irresponsible? after calling for a truck driver strike at Port Klang, even as the major South-east Asian transshipment hub grapples with severe yard congestion. Last week, assemblyman Azmizam Zaman Huri reportedly said truck drivers serving Port Klang could strike if the government didn?t upgrade roads leading into to the port.

Furthermore, 11 port and logistics organizations, led by Port Klang Authority, roundly criticized Mr Azmizam for
his strike call while debating the Selangor state budget. They view very seriously the call, which is irrational, unreasonable and irresponsible, as it would create other problems such as a break in the logistics supply chain
for the supply of raw materials, food, vegetables, fruits and medical supplies. The congestion will only start to ease a few months after countries we connect with stop using lockdowns as a means of fighting Covid. And your guess is as good as mine with regards to when we will no longer have lockdowns.
