We at the Transport Board understand and appreciate the situation being experienced by our recently retrenched workers in these trying economic times. As such, we have sought to put in place a system where we can assist them at this time. These dialogues had commenced before but were discussed in earnest with our Minister last Wednesday and will be continuing until this situation is completely resolved.
It must be pointed out that we are not in possession of the total funds, but to show good faith we shall be paying some of the funds to all of the affected persons commencing August 29, 2014.
Our Human Resources department will be contacting each of the employees individually indicating when the funds will be available for collection.
We ask that they continue to be patient as we work on resolving this sensitive situation.
