Malaysia: Bus drivers wildcat ends

Bus drivers at RapidPenang in Malaysia ended a one-day wildcat strike last week after talks with management.

Drivers demonstrated outside the Sungai Nibong bus depot during the strike, demanding increases in salaries and incentives, and for outstanding traffic summonses to be settled by RapidPenang.

The company's chief executive Azhar Ahmad said the drivers returned to work after receiving a 20% increase in their daily incentive allowance, however they were also given verbal warnings and required to sign an agreement to prevent them taking similar action in the future.
