After the MTR, NWFB and Citybus announced the salary freeze, KMB and Long Win also announced today (3rd) that they have decided to maintain the 2021 salary level for all employees with a surplus and approval of fare increases.
The spokesperson said that due to the impact of the new crown epidemic, the severe operating environment and the current state of the labor market, it is necessary to make relevant decisions, and thank the employees for their understanding.
Taking into account that employees have been sticking to their posts in the past and serving the public with a professional attitude, a one-time ex-gratia payment of RMB 2,000 will be given to employees of non-management ranks, and the salary and benefits of all ranks will remain unchanged.
The spokesman said that the operating conditions of KMB and Long Win are facing major challenges. Under the new crown epidemic, gathering restrictions and port epidemic prevention measures have caused the passenger volume and revenue of buses to fail to return to their pre-epidemic levels.
The opening of the new railway line has further hit the passenger capacity, coupled with the continuous increase in oil prices since the beginning of the year, the government's rejection of Long Win's fare increase application, and the loss of part of the newly tendered bus route operating rights, all have put heavy pressure on the company's operations and finances.
KMB and Long Win expect the future business environment to continue to be difficult. After careful consideration of the above factors and with reference to the employment market and the government's decision on the salary review of civil servants, they have formulated a salary review plan for this year.
The spokesman continued that the management of KMB and Long Win has actively communicated with the representatives of the Kowloon Motor Transport Industry Federation's Kowloon Bus Branch and Long Win Bus Branch, as well as representatives of the Kowloon Motor Bus Workers' Union and its Long Win Bus Branch on the decision. .
The company thanks its employees for their understanding and consideration of the company’s difficult business environment.
The company promises to do its utmost to ensure stable employment for its employees, and hopes to work together and unite with employees to continue to provide passengers with safe, reliable and high-quality services.
The spokesperson pointed out that a one-time special gratuity of 2,000 yuan will be issued to non-management employees, as well as annual salary increase points for employees, year-end bonuses for monthly employees, and double pay for the year-end basic salary, year-end bonuses for daily employees, and Lunar New Year bonuses. , And the promotion mechanism arrangements for employees at all levels will remain unchanged.
