SMRT to have Chinese representative in each dorm


SMRT is open to the idea of nominating bus drivers from China in each of the dormitories to represent their fellow countrymen and colleagues to provide feedback to its management, said the company's chief executive Desmond Kuek.

Mr Kuek, who made his first appearance on Friday since returning from leave, gave this update in his first comments on the strike earlier this week.

Following a visit to the workers' dorms at Serangoon in the morning, he noted that the conditions of the dorms could "certainly be better".

During the visit, he spoke to some of the bus service leaders to learn more about their concerns. This was followed by a trip to the Ang Mo Kio bus depot to monitor the bus operations there.
