MMT cancels fixed salary, workers to be paid hourly wage

The management of the Metro Mass Transit Limited in Accra have announced that the company will effective April 01, 2018 pay workers on hourly basis for their services instead of the normal fixed salary.

The move according to the Board Chairman of the company, Ahmed Arthur is to check discipline and effectiveness at the organization.

This comes after some 50 workers of the company were sent home by the Board Chairman for reporting to work late on Tuesday.

The Board Chair Ahmed Arthur, was left with shock as he observed poor work ethics within the yard when he paid an unannounced visit to the facility.

According to Arthur, what he found painted a grim picture of employee’s work ethics as he questioned the work rate of workers of the facility in view of the indiscipline.

“Management will meet to determine what further sanctions that’ll be meted out to the affected workers. Most of the workers report to work at 10:30 am and leave at 4:00 pm. We won’t compromise on punctuality hence the need for discipline. We have also activated the clock-in machine to ensure we bring seriousness at the facility.”

Meanwhile, he’s commended the Metro Mass drivers for their phenomenal hard work saying he’ll at the right time reward the drivers for their punctuality, efficiency and mindful work ethic.
