Smrt Collective Agreement

2. The new wage framework was developed after several months of sectoral review, a comparative market assessment, the setting of performance targets and an extensive consultation process with the National Union of Transport Workers (NTWU), a union affiliated to the Union`s National Trade Congress (NTUC). The two sides agreed earlier this week and today sent a revised collective agreement to begin implementation of the 2013 SMRT salary review and an enhanced framework for the professional development of all non-executive employees. The signing ceremony was hosted by Lim Swee Say, Secretary General of NTUC. For a previous list of certified collective agreements, please refer to the Management`s Reports. 5. « NTWU has had ongoing discussions with SMRT on the revision of the compensation system for non-managerial employees. It is a collective choice for both parties to work towards a progressive and responsive remuneration system for all SMRT employees. That is why we are very happy to conclude the agreement with SMRT and to offer better wage packages to workers. This revision also marks the beginning of a new chapter of Good Working Relations (LMR) between the SMRT leadership and the NTWU, » commented Mr. Mohd Rasi Taib, President of the National Transport Union. The powers of our unions are granted by the Labour Relations Act. The purpose of the Act is to prevent and resolve labour disputes through collective bargaining, conciliation and arbitration by the Labour Arbitration Tribunal.

Favorable conditions in collective agreements also benefit non-unionized people when they work in a unionized company, he said. If all this has been negotiated and agreed, the unions will sign an agreement with the leaders of your company. This is called the collective agreement. If it is signed and certified by the Labour Arbitration Tribunal, it is mandatory and a company must comply with it. The concept of General Branch Membership (GB) was introduced by NTUC in early 1992. This was an innovative approach to broaden the membership base of the CNTUC by encouraging social and lifestyle benefits rather than collective bargaining services that may not apply to all workers. NTWU supported this concept and launched our first recruitment of UK members. In a few months, we were able to recruit 119 people.

Today, our UK members have more than 4,300. The work of collective bargaining should not be seen as a contradictory act. Unions can be friends with both employers and the government. That is the spirit of the three members, and it is something that many countries cannot implement. The first collective agreement was signed in 1983 with SBS in the presence of Lim Chee Onn, then General Secretary of the NTUC. In the same year, Trans-Island Bus (TIBS) was inaugurated as a branch of the NTWU. The TIBS subsidiary is expected to be the second branch to operate public bus services with about 400 union members. Certified collective agreements shall be published in the Official Journal.

They are also available at lawnet and the National Library. The list of certified collective agreements for the year is available here. « Working conditions and social benefits, as defined in collective agreements negotiated by the unions, have improved significantly since the 60s, » Karthikeyan said. . . .
