Oi, IEM, what about the retrenched Peninsular engineers?
Dateline 2016-05-26, Daily Express:
Ir. Warrence Chan Kok Peng of the Institution of Engineers (IEM) Sabah Chapter feels strongly about projects, professional work and employment for Sabah-based engineers.
At the last Sabah Oil & Gas Leadership event, he canvassed for local engineers to be given the chance to train with major oil and gas project contractors and consultants to prove their competency and mettle.
The State’s nascent five-year oil and gas industry did not accord them any opportunity when the industry was non-existent in the past.
At the 5th Sabah Oil and Gas Conference and Exhibition, Chan appealed to the oil and gas industry players and project implementers to use Sabah-based engineers to comply with employment laws of the State and to avert social problems related with liaison or relationship with local womenfolk.
