SINGAPORE - Public transport operator SMRT has rolled out a new career scheme that will provide about 4,000 staff with better career paths, a broader job scope and higher pay.

The scheme applies to 4,000 SMRT rail division staff, from train drivers and station managers to technical officers and engineers. It will mean higher pay for staff who take on a larger role, said SMRT.

The scheme, modelled after the labour movement's progressive wage model, was launched on Wednesday at an event attended by NTUC Secretary-General Lim Swee Say, senior SMRT staff and union leaders.

SMRT adopted a similar scheme for its 2,000 bus drivers last November.
