Published on: Friday, January 11, 2019





State Infrastructure Development Minister Datuk Peter Anthony assured all 1,335 staff of the six terminated water outsource companies that they will all be automatically absorbed into the State Water Department, through the State Public Services Department (PSD).

He said this at a press conference Thursday and refuted allegations in social media that the staff concerned would have no jobs when the State Water Department’s termination of the six companies takes effect on Jan. 15.

Saying that the allegation was spread irresponsible people to frighten and worry the staff concerned, Anthony said as had already been decided, all the staff would be absorbed as a special case.

He said the Water Department actually had already sent a notification on the matter to each of the six companies concerned.

He hoped the assurance would bring relief to all the staff concerned and that they can contact the State Water Department hotline 088-326888 should they need further clarification.

Anthony also hoped the re-engaged staff would continue to provide their best services to the department for the betterment of the people and the State.

The department would take over the operations of all 58 water plants previously managed by them throughout the State on Jan. 15. State Water Department Director, Amarjit Singh, was also present. – Larry Ralon
