SMRT is managing the morale of other drivers following arrest of four over illegal strikes: SMRT CEO


President and CEO of SMRT, Desmond Kuek, has visited the workers' dormitory in Serangoon and has spoken to the SMRT bus drivers there. 

Mr Kuek made the visit today to understand first-hand the concerns of the drivers and to appreciate their living conditions. 

He noted that the conditions in the dormitories could certainly be better, and said feedback has been given to the dormitory operators to improve the living conditions there. 

Commenting on the four drivers from China who have been arrested and charged in court, he said SMRT is managing the morale of the other drivers who are understandingly anxious about the outcome.

He said the drivers he met this afternoon have assured him that they will continue to work hard to serve their passengers. 

He also assured the drivers that SMRT values their service and will improve its management, communication and engagement efforts to be more responsive and sensitive to their needs.
