Bus industry unions concerns about impact of transport crisis on 5,000 employees

The Union of Bus Industry Workers (UBIW) has expressed concern about the potential negative impact of the crisis in the public transportation sector on the approximately 5,000 employees.

Bus company owners are facing declining revenues and increasing costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the introduction of the metro system. 

Negotiations between the employers and the union are underway to review working conditions and discuss salary increases.

However, the bus operators claim that they are unable to afford higher wages. Rose Hill Transport (RHT) said it has lost 60% of its passengers who have switched from buses to the metro.

The company had to downsize its bus fleet from 100 to 75 vehicles.

The United Bus Service Transport Ltd (UBS) has experienced at least a 35% decrease in revenue. 

They support the UBIW’s initiative to seek a tripartite meeting with the government in order to find a resolution.
