SMRT bus drivers from China return to work


The SMRT bus drivers from China, who refused to report for duty earlier this week over a wage dispute, returned to work on Wednesday.

They were seen boarding buses, which would ferry them to the various bus depots, from their dormintories at both Woodlands and Serangoon Gardens at 3.45am and 4am.

Two police officers were spotted at Serangoon Gardens, monitoring the situation. They left after speaking briefly with the driver of the 4am bus.

Before boarding the buses, each driver was also given a notice written in Chinese by a supervisor.
