Maseu to increase campaign against MAS.

AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2003 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

The Malaysian Airline System Employees Union (Maseu) will more aggressively campaign against alleged gender discriminatory policies by Malaysia Airlines (MAS).

The union is campaigning against the airline's policy of requiring female cabin crew to retire at the age of 40, or 45 depending on seniority. The union has distributed leaflets to highlight that female crew members who serve until they are 40 are given a gratuity of only MYR800 per year of service, and that female crew members are only allowed to become pregnant after serving the company for at least five years.

The union is seeking a solution to the "discriminatory" retirement age, but will now increase its campaign as it feels negotiations are going nowhere.
