SMRT’s response:

1. Remuneration
Unlike drivers from Malaysia, who are employed on a permanent basis, drivers from China are hired two-year contracts that carry different terms of employment.  While the starting pay for drivers from China is lower, they are provided with accommodation, utilities as well as daily transport to work.

An additional adjustment of $25 per month for Chinese drivers was finalised last week and SMRT was in the process of communicating the matter to the drivers.

Taking into consideration the foreign worker levy and the provision of transport, accommodation and utilities, SMRT claims that the remuneration packages for drivers from China and Malaysia are reasonable.
