EXECUTIVE CIMB’S HISTORY
Message from the Founder of the
I would like to congratulate the President, Secretary
and all Exco. members of the Bumiputra – Commerce
Executive Staff Union for the timely move to set up this
Website. I consider this a far-sighted move. It is in
line with the industry’s best practices to bring its
members closer and to ensure speedy reach of information
across all levels in the most effective manner. I note
the key role and effort of Ng Peng Ho and his team in
initiating this website.
I am deeply honored to be invited to write on the
union’s beginning and the energy that sparked its early
It was during the time of United Asian Bank Bhd that
this union was set up on 27 January, 1988 and named
“United Asian Bank Officers Union”. News of the move to
set up this union sent shock waves across many levels of
the staff, and this was followed by several informal
meetings and dialogues. Despite subsequent meetings
between the pro-tem committee and the officers to seek
their views to reconsider their move to set up the
union, the officers were firmly committed in the belief
that the setting up of this union has to be realised,
and the pro-tem committee secured a unanimous mandate to
take all expeditious steps to ensure the union is
registered by the Director General of Trade Union. .
The offices wanted a systematic approach to voice their
views with crystal clear terms and conditions of
employment, and aimed at amicably forging industrial
harmony. With differing terms and conditions of
employment existing, the officers felt there was no
formal method for redressing grievances at that time.
Finally there was light at the end of the tunnel when
the union was formed. Especially so when the first
Collective Agreement was concluded within one of the
shortest time frame in history, and the terms and
conditions were regulated. With the fruits of our labour
realized, a strong working relationship was established
between the management and the officers.
I must emphasize at this point that it is of paramount
importance that union leaders display the highest
professionalism and work ethics towards enhancement of
productivity. The union was often seen offering guidance
to its members encouraging better work discipline, and
encouraging members to deliver the highest standards of
service to the bank’s customers, to enhance shareholders
value and bank competitiveness.
I am pleased to note that the union leaders today have
acted in the best interest of industrial harmony even
though there has been several changes of guards over the
years. I wish the union success in all its endeavors.
With the dedication and conviction to best practices, I
trust you will succeed in promoting a high level of
productivity, securing better and more competitive
benefits for your members, going forward.
I extend my very best wishes,
