The National Labour Commission (NLC) is expected to meet striking staff of the Metro Mass Transit Company Limited today, October 14.
This comes after Junior and Senior Staff of Metro Mass Transit Limited laid down their tools over delays in the payment of salaries.
They have accused top Management of mismanaging the affairs of the company including failing to make money available to repair broken down vehicles, fuel buses and also delay in paying salaries.
The workers have been on a nationwide sit-down strike since October 12. Patrons of Metro Mass have been left stranded across the country, and the National Labour Commission is set to intervene to resolve the issues.
The secretary to the Senior Staff Division of the workers’ union in an interview with Citi News said although the group has accepted to meet the Commission, the strike will continue until their demands are met.
“The demand is that, we want to hear from the President on the removal of the Managing Director. Until that, the strike is still on. We don’t know what the Commission is going to tell us, so we will still sit and go and listen to them.”
