大馬汽油商公會主席凱魯安華今天指出,政府實施每周浮動油價機制未見其利先見其害;油價快速變動令全國油站經營者無所適從;尤其鄉鎮地區的油站業者蒙受巨大虧損,已經快經營不下去了。

他說,全國目前總共有3500間加油站,總共聘請超過5萬員工,其中1.4萬是添油服務員。

為了削減開銷,油站公會正醞釀大裁員,停止添油服務,改為自助添油Self Services;這樣一來,意味著將會有1萬4000油站員工面對失業斷糧的下場。

他說:《全國5萬油站員工當中,外勞只占了21%,就算剔除鄉鎮油站,只是統計城市地區油站,外勞的比率也只是40%,大多數員工還是本地人;因此這股失業衝擊的後果非常嚴重。》

根據統計,從2014年12月迄今,全國5大品牌油站業者,即蜆殼Shell;國油Petronas;古德士Caltex;貝德隆Petron及英國石油BHP;已經關閉了超過200間油站;今年面對更嚴峻挑戰,估計陸續關閉的油站將會越來越多。

《尤其鄉區的油站,由於添油生意量小,加上沒有經營附屬小商店來補貼收入,很多已經表示準備將油站特許經營權交還給石油公司,收檔不做了。》他說。

問題是,這1萬4000名即將失業的員工,將何去何從?大馬市場上失業的大學生已經高達20萬人,還有其他等待就業的人,失業率偏高將會衍生更多社會問題,如何是好?

Petrol dealers warn 14,000 workers may lose jobs

Petrol Dealers Association of Malaysia (PDAM) president Khairul Annuar says with the weekly price change having a major impact on retailers across the country, thousands of workers may lose their jobs, The Star reported.

He said this was a drastic but necessary measure for these dealers to take in order to cut their monthly expenses in running their petrol dealership.

「If cost continues to be an issue, 14,000 people will lose their jobs as we will go for full self-service,」 Khairul was quoted as saying.

According to him, there are a total of 3,500 petrol stations nationwide with a workforce of 50,000, of which 14,000 are forecourt staff (pump attendants).

A nationwide survey commissioned by PDAM had also revealed that only 21% of the workers at petrol stations are foreign workers while the rest are locals.

「This is contrary to popular belief on the composition of foreign workers at petrol stations,」 Khairul told the daily.

However, he admitted that the survey shows the level of foreign workers is 40%, when taking only petrol stations in urban areas into account.

Meanwhile, Khairul said on average 30 to 40 petrol stations per brand – Shell, Petron, Petronas, BHP and Caltex – have ceased operations since the implementation of the monthly price change mechanism for fuel prices in December 2014.

「This situation is getting worse, more so in recent weeks following the weekly price change mechanism starting April 1.

「We are concerned that more dealers will give up their dealership if the trend continues,」 Khairul was quoted as saying by The Star.

He added that the biggest impact was felt in cities or towns where there are too many stations within the same vicinity, such as in Johor Baru.

「Also affected are stations in rural areas, where their sale is low and dealers don』t have a petrol mart or convenient store income to subsidise the weekly loss,」 Khairul was quoted as saying.
