OTHER Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) workers’ group say they will not be involved in any issue pertaining to the appointment of  the utility firm’s CEO.

In a joint press statement today, the group comprising TNB Support Service Officers’ Union, TNB Executive Association, TNB Executive Officers Association and TNB Security Unit Association say the matter is “political.” 

“This joint committee of association and union is taking a neutral stance over the matter,” they said, adding that they are not bound by the Joint Union of TNB Workers (KPPPTNB) previously.

Yesterday KPPPTNB said that they remain supportive of TNB CEO, Datuk Seri Amir Hamzah Azizan.

In a statement yesterday,  KPPTNB said the call was made following speculation that Amir Hamzah may be removed from the post for unknown reasons.

KPPPTNB president Othman Alias said he found it “uncanny” that Amir Hamzah’s fate is being postulated publicly, giving rise to uncertainty within the group and its employees.

“Our working committee has decided that Amir Hamzah has been very cooperative and is always willing to discuss and share his thoughts about the company’s performance.

“He has also shown his concern for employees during this difficult time, and has been willing to approve special allowances to TNB frontline employees during the Covid-19 pandemic,” Othman added.
