Metro Mass Transit Workers Union says it has not been engaged by the management of the company regarding the reported change in modalities of payment of their salaries.
On Tuesday, Board Chairman of the Metro Mass Transit Limited, Ahmed Arthur in an interview announced that workers will from April 1, this year be paid an hourly wage for their services instead of a fixed salary.
The Divisional Union Chairman for the Metro Mass Transit Workers Union, Samuel Quaye told XYZ News’ Kenneth Awotwe Darko on Wednesday April 4 2018, that a consensus with the drivers is necessary on such sensitive matters.
“It’s not the truth because as we sit here we have not gone for any discussion on that. You need to ask him [Mr. Ahmed Arthur] that, is that where we negotiate salaries or discuss salary issues? If there’s anything to go by, we need to sit down as workers and management, and not in public. So he is doing his own thing,”Samuel Quaye said.
He however added that the workers are also not privy to any change to that effect.
“For we as workers nothing as such has been brought to our desk.”
