Malasia - Electronics company found guilty of union busting

On 8 March 2016 an industrial court found Renesas Semiconductor KL guilty of union busting. The events that led to the court case cover several years, beginning with the founding of the Electro-nics Industry Employees Union-Western Region Peninsular Malaysia (EIEU-WRPM) in December 2009. The company refused to recognise the union, and instead set up an in-house union in early 2010. It offered the post of president of the new in-house union to the president of the EIEU local, Wan Noorulazhar, which he refused. He was subsequently redeployed to a post below his status, and in 2011 was sacked in what the judge described as “manifestly a union-busting tactic”.
