KTB vows action against mastermind behind bus drivers strike
KOTA BARU: The management of Konsortium Transnasional Berhad (KTB), parent company of Syarikat Kenderaan Melayu Kelantan (SKMK) will take firm action against the mastermind behind a strike by a group of Cityliner bus drivers last Monday.
KTB executive director Tengku Hasmadi Tengku Hashim said the action by the group to halt bus services that day, could tarnish the name and image of the company.
He said the strike against the company for allegedly delaying staff salary payment was without basis.
"According to the agreement in the employment circular effective Jan 1, this year, the employer will pay the staff salary on the last day of each month," he said when contacted by Bernama today.
Tengku Hasmadi was commenting on the action by 168 Cityliner bus drivers to halt bus services in a bid to compel their employer to duly pay their salary.
He clarified that should the last day of the month fall on Sunday or public holiday, salary would be paid, the following Friday.
He drew attention to the Labour Regulations which stipulate, among others, that the employer had the prerogative to pay staff salary within the first seven days of the following month.
"If the allegations are true that the group's demand was based on a delay in salary payment, why weren't the other 3,000 company staff involved?," he asked. BERNAMA
