HOUSING AND OTHER AMENITIES

To allow workers to have a feeling of “home” while working in our premise, we are progressively upgrading and renovating our old and wooden labor quarters to three-room concrete type. A comfortable and clean housing site is paramount for them to have a good rest after a long day of hard works.

Workers are trained to take care of the property responsibly. Management also carry out monthly housing inspection to ensure the houses are well –taken of.

Further, we assist new workers to adapt to our community by providing necessities like cooking pots, gas stove, rice and cooking oil.

UMB also provides free medical treatment services for workers and their dependents. Estates that do not have clinic facilities send their workers to third-party medical facilities outside the estate. Apart from the housing, UMB also provides other amenities such as child learning centres, creche and worship places for the estate community. 

COMPLAINTS AND GRIEVANCES PROCEDURE

The Complaints and Grievances Procedure provides all involved stakeholders with an unbiased and fair treatment framework. The complaints or grievances can be lodged manually using a designated form available at the respective offices and are usually resolved at the operational level.
