It is the interpretation of collective agreements that has been called into question, his spokesman said. We address the well-being and interests of workers through a variety of activities, including collective bargaining, dispute resolution and complaints and social benefits such as merchandise rebates, affordable insurance coverage, and sports and social activities. In 2003, comfort Group and Delgro Group merged and founded, after J.C., the second largest ground transportation company in the world. In close coordination and cooperation between management and the union, the companies of the Comfort Group arrived smoothly in the NTWU. The number of NTWU members increased by an additional 750. Chan J.A. stated that the collective agreements were respected in accordance with the sampling contracts, sampling plans and salary calculations submitted by SBST. The concept of membership in The General Branch (GB) was introduced by the NTUC in early 1992. This was an innovative approach to broadening the membership base of the NTUC by promoting social and lifestyle services instead of collective bargaining that may not apply to all workers. NTWU supported this concept and began recruiting members from the UK. In a few months, we managed to recruit 119 people. Today, our members in the UNITED Kingdom have a total membership of more than 4,300. IAC resolves labour disputes and certifies collective agreements between unions and employers.
The first collective agreement was signed in 1983 with SBS in the presence of Lim Chee Onn, then Secretary General of the NTUC. In the same year, Trans-Island Bus (TIBS) was inaugurated as a branch of the NTWU. The TIBS branch is expected to be the second branch with approximately 400 union members. “The IAC is a more appropriate forum to deal with this issue, as it is a specialized tribunal that decides industrial disagreements and serves to maintain industrial peace,” the ministry said. “The Iac`s interpretation of the collective agreement will provide the finality and security of this issue to all.” SBS Transit, which prides itself on being a law-abiding and responsible employer with strong working relationships with its employees and the NTWU, has acted in accordance with its legal conventions and practices. These assertions raise issues raised by SBS Transit`s collective agreements with the National Transport Workers` Union (NTWU). Therefore, in the interest of all SBS Transit bus captains, SBS Transit, in the interest of the letter and spirit of its excellent relationship with the NTWU, will address these questions to the Industrial Arbitration Court (IAC) for its decision.
