Bagan Pinang: Estate Workers In Bagan Pinang To Get Better Facilities

PORT DICKSON, Oct 8 (Bernama) -- Sime Darby Berhad will continue to provide tarred roads and better facilities in four estates here, said Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr S.Subramaniam.

He said existing facilities in the four estates - the Salak (Atherton), Sua Betong, Siliau and Bradwall estates - would also be repaired.

The company gave the assurance in a meeting with me on Monday. It had also agreed to provide a reasonable salary," he told reporters after visiting the Sua Betong Estate here Thursday.

He said the company would build a new community hall and another hall for the Maha Mariamman temple in the Salak Estate.

"Sime Darby will also solve flooding in a low-lying area in the Sua Betong Estate while the drains in the Hindu and Christian cemeteries there will be repaired.

He said the company would provide a photostat machine and a fax machine for a Tamil school in the Siliau Estate.

Subramaniam said Sime Darby had tarred a road along shophouses in the Bradwall Estate and a road leading to a temple in the Sua Betong Estate, and built community halls in all estates and a badminton court in the Sua Betong Estate.

Subramaniam said he had proposed to Sime Darby to set up the Estate Workers Housing Aid Fund to help workers own houses when they retire like that of Felda settlers.

"Under the scheme, employers' contribution can be kept for the workers, who will be entitled to withdraw the money when they meet the requirements like after working for 10 years at the estate.

"They can use the money to pay the deposit for a house," he said.

On estate workers salary, he said in a survey conducted by the Labour Department showed that estate workers in Port Dickson earned between RM600 and RM1,200 monthly in the past four months.
