SBS Transit Management Team :
I’m writing on behalf of my cousin (Mr Pang Akau, Badge No 20692). The last bus service route he was in charge was Service 243W at Boon Lay Interchange. Mr Pang had been a loyal SBS Bus Driver.
He had been with SBS since 1980, and had been on the bus driver job for the last 30 years. He was schedule to retire 2 years ago at the age of 65, but had extend the employment by another 2 years, on request of SBS. He is schedule to retire next Mar, 2016.
However, 1 month back, his employment by SBS transit was terminated abruptly by the management of Boon Lay Interchange – reason : not stopping during a left turn at a traffic light on red. In fact – he still turning left, only when the light turned Red. I can understanding the important of abiding by the traffic rules on the road to keep drivers and pedestrians safe on the road.
But terminating a loyal 30 years bus driver, with his retirement 8 months away?? He lost all his retirement pension and bonus because of this.
That’s how SBS treat a loyal 30 years employee………
