30-Year SBS Driver Loses Pension after Getting Sacked Months Before Retirement

GARY YEO: I’m writing on behalf of my cousin (Mr Pang Akau, Badge No 20692). The last bus service route he was in charge was Service 243W at Boon Lay Interchange.

Mr Pang had been a loyal SBS Bus Driver. He had been with SBS since 1980, and had been on the bus driver job for the last 30 years. He was schedule to retire 2 years ago at the age of 65, but had extend the employment by another 2 years, on request of SBS. He is schedule to retire next Mar, 2016.

However, 1 month back, his employment by SBS transit was terminated eruptly by the management of Boon Lay Interchange – reason : not stopping during a left turn at a traffic light on red. In fact – he still turning left, only when the light turned Red.

I can understanding the important of abiding by the traffic rules on the road to keep drivers and pedestrians safe on the road. But terminating a loyal 30 years bus driver, with his retirement 8 months away?? He lost all his retirement pension and bonus because of this.

That’s how SBS treat a loyal 30 years employee………

    Actually, if you are already in the turn and the traffic lights change against you, you have the right of way to continue because, if not you will be an obstruction to other traffic users.

    too bad
    the more years your cousins it’s going to work against him
    I mean doesn’t he know the rules and especially the traffic rules .
    Say what you like . This is a realistic world .
    Has your cousin been reprimanded before .
    You didn’t tell us .
    Has he done any good deeds or exceptional deed to mitigate ….
    I can only say bad choice . He choose to play with fire and get himself burnt .
    Since he is serving for 30 years he should know all these and font use that for his benefits .

    Ya. They are like this. No matter how long a bus captain works. Assisting them even in other areas. They don’t appreciate it.
