Someone must explain to these Chinese drivers that Singapore is a strike-free country especially for critical public services. Also the NTUC is always there to champion the interests of workers and everything here is based on tripartite agreement. Striking is not in our vocabulary, only working more and more productivily is.
Maybe the mainland drivers are missing their wives and girlfriends.
Such unrest is a sign of physical needs.
The transport authority may have to subsidize their adventures to Lorong 18.
A happy driver is a safe driver.
NTWU says it can't act for SMRT's bus workers from PRC
Maybe these workers should form their own workers party.
maybe some papers cannot say strikes...
Eat breath LIVERPOOL!!!
Basically PRC bus drivers feel treated differently from Malaysian colleagues.
Foreigners from country X are unhappy with Foreigners from country Y; within Singapore.
TV news say solved and SMRT will give answer in 1 week's time.
If the answer is not satisfactory 1 week later, will the PRC bus drivers sit on grass lawn in front of Parliament House?
Some PRC construction workers did that years ago.
Anyway i screencaps a whole lot of online articles from msm calling it a strike.
their computers auto correct that word.....lolOriginally Posted by fotoudavid
The red van police unit was activated. So even if they do not want to use the word which seems taboo, the rest of the world knows what it is. Just call a spade, a spade. And deal with it accordingly. After all these are foreigners who do not care how their actions affect Singapore in the longer term because they would have left after a short while.
someone want to make it low key news.
Think of concepts and work towards it.
anyways its a new record. look at the graph. very little/close to no strikes in a long run. since no union approved/50% vote etc... cannot be called a strike... but hey! can always count the man hours lost
Strikes - Ministry of Manpower
