DiGi Employees 4 years struggle and got their Union


“UNI MLC Boleh, DiGi Employees Union Boleh!!”

The secret ballot for the recognition of the DiGi Telecommunications Sdn. Bhd. Employees Union was held on 11 – 13 March of 2014 across the Malay Peninsula. The union emerged victorious. This is despite several reports of DiGi management carrying out several union-busting activities and harassment to union members even during the balloting period.

Two directors from UNI Apro, ICTS Director Kun Wardana Abyoto and Organizing and Campaigns Director Satoshi Tamai, were sent to the UNI MLC office in Kuala Lumpur to encourage and assist the union with its secret ballot campaign.

"What we witnessed during the secret ballot period was hard work, team effort and dedication from the UNI MLC staff, DiGi Employees Union leaders led by President Carina Wong Lai Ming, and especially UNI MLC President Mohamed Shafie BP Mammal for his strong leadership, determination and strategic planning through the campaign," said Satoshi Tamai. "The team had strategically stationed themselves at the head office gate to rally all eligible employees for their votes and to hand out “Let’s Vote” bulletins."


The secret ballot win is a great triumph for the union after the insistent refusal of the DiGi/Telenor management to accept the formation of the union despite the Telenor Global Framework Agreement. The union will now negotiate for a CBA and focus on organizing more members to prepare for a counterattack from the management.
