Assistant Secretary-General of NTUC, Cham Hui Fong commented, "resolving issues is not through the form of strikes, but rather, communicating with people.”

The National Transport Workers' Union (NTWU) has offered to continue to work with SMRT’s management in order to engage and address the issues faced by the Chinese drivers.

Executive Secretary of the National Transport Workers Union (NTWU), Mr Ong Chin Ang, mentioned that unionists have spoken to the drivers and advised them on the laws in Singapore. Unionists have also advised them to return to work to avoid causing inconvenience to the commuting public.

The Chinese Embassy in Singapore said it has been in close contact with all the relevant parties. It urged Singapore’s employer to consider the reasonable part of the workers' demand. Workers also need to voice their concerns in a proper way and abide by the laws and regulations of the city state.
