Ong Ye Kung as a director of SMRT should have known about the plight of the bus drivers. But as union leader of the bus driver, he did nothing. And NTUC is now claiming credit for unionisg PRC drivers? Why now only after a strike? But let’s be fair, maybe NTUC leaders are like the many readers of TRE who “hate” all things PRC. See all the negative stories TRE carries from the Western media about China which pander to these readers.

  1. Joining the union is voluntary and in SBS, their PRC drivers had joined the union. However, at SMRT, it seems like the drivers were not keen to join the union until after the illegal strike, they realise the benefits.

    No one can force an employee to join the union, and as much as we like Ong Ye Kung, he would not be able to arm wrestle anyone to join.

    • Why do you think workers are keen to join a “union” run by the government/employers? NTUC is NOT a WORKERS’ union.

  2. Members couldn’t be happier when their union chief is also the boss of the company – there was no strike before Ye Kung left SMRT.
