Tower Transit announces pay increment of 3.5%

SINGAPORE: UK-based transport operator and Singapore's third public bus operator Tower Transit on Monday (May 16) announced it will be bumping up the pay of its bus captains and all staff covered under its agreement with the National Transport Workers' Union by 3.5 per cent.

The increment will take effect starting May and will benefit more than 700 employees, including bus captains on the 26 services being taken over by the company from May 29, it said in its press release.

A junior bus captain at Tower Transit will now receive a basic monthly salary of S$1,930. With overtime and incentives, this will translate to about S$3,440 and above per month, Tower Transit said.

The increment is based on national wage data and will mean that Tower Transit’s staff wages keep pace with the cost of living in Singapore, it added.

“By pegging our annual wage adjustments to national wage data, and keeping it separate from performance incentives, we’re making sure all of our staff’s wages keep in step with the cost of living in Singapore," said Tower Transit managing director Andrew Bujtor.
