大马汽油商公会主席凯鲁安华今天指出,政府实施每周浮动油价机制未见其利先见其害;油价快速变动令全国油站经营者无所适从;尤其乡镇地区的油站业者蒙受巨大亏损,已经快经营不下去了。

他说,全国目前总共有3500间加油站,总共聘请超过5万员工,其中1.4万是添油服务员。

为了削减开销,油站公会正酝酿大裁员,停止添油服务,改为自助添油Self Services;这样一来,意味着将会有1万4000油站员工面对失业断粮的下场。

他说:《全国5万油站员工当中,外劳只占了21%,就算剔除乡镇油站,只是统计城市地区油站,外劳的比率也只是40%,大多数员工还是本地人;因此这股失业冲击的后果非常严重。》

根据统计,从2014年12月迄今,全国5大品牌油站业者,即蚬壳Shell;国油Petronas;古德士Caltex;贝德隆Petron及英国石油BHP;已经关闭了超过200间油站;今年面对更严峻挑战,估计陆续关闭的油站将会越来越多。

《尤其乡区的油站,由于添油生意量小,加上没有经营附属小商店来补贴收入,很多已经表示准备将油站特许经营权交还给石油公司,收档不做了。》他说。

问题是,这1万4000名即将失业的员工,将何去何从?大马市场上失业的大学生已经高达20万人,还有其他等待就业的人,失业率偏高将会衍生更多社会问题,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.
