  + stars: | 2021-06-10 | by ( Mei Mei Chu | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +2 min
A logo of Goodyear is pictured at it's factory in Shah Alam, Malaysia May 6, 2021. Goodyear Malaysia argued that the migrant workers did not have legal standing to file the complaint as they were not union members, according to the court documents. "This is just the tip of the iceberg albeit a significant milestone in the treatment of migrant workers in this company," said the workers' lawyer Chandra Segaran Rajandran. The court has already ruled in favor of the foreign workers in two of the cases last year. Goodyear is also facing accusations of unlawful overtime, wrongful salary deduction, denying workers full access to their passports, and threats to migrant workers, Reuters has reported.

The foreign workers are claiming about 5 million ringgit ($1.21 million) in unpaid wages, said their lawyer, Chandra Segaran Rajandran. According to the court ruling last year, Goodyear Malaysia argued that foreign workers are not entitled to the benefits of the collective agreement because they are not union members. The court agreed that the foreign workers’ job scope entitled them to those benefits. The foreign workers filed the first two lawsuits in July 2019.

The allegations, which Reuters is the first to report, initially surfaced when 185 foreign workers filed three complaints against Goodyear Malaysia in the country's industrial court, two in 2019 and one in 2020, over non-compliance with a collective labour agreement.
