Genting Malaysia has given its employees a 12% salary increase under its 10th collective agreement signed between the company and Resorts World Employees Union. "Employees will receive overall salary adjustment ranging between RM60 and RM210, subject to positions and added responsibilities," said Genting Malaysia president and chief operating officer Datuk Lee Choong Yan. Some 6,500 staff will benefit from the increment. At the signing ceremony in Kuala Lumpur yesterday, Resorts World Employees Union was represented by its president Robert Vijendren and witnessed by Human Resources Minister Datuk S. Subramaniam. Employees will also enjoy additional income for split allowance, food and beverage counter crew allowance and cashier allowance. Genting also agreed to a RM1,000 increase under hospitalisation benefits, which was previously RM4,500 to RM5,500 annually. (BT)
