Żminijietna appeals to ARRIVA to improve the working conditions of the Bus Drivers.

Żminijietna - Voice of the Left is highly concerned about the primitive conditions that the drivers of ARRIVA are exposed to. The system applied by the company’s management is leaving many workers waiting for their turn outside in the sun, in the Mall neighbourhood.
  
"Apart from the fact that these miserable conditions reduce the level of the service given this is also putting an extra strain on the drivers. The working conditions should remain a priority in the operation of the Public Transport service”.

Żminijietna appeals to the union and the Public Transport Authority to take this problem seriously and to tackle it with the company in the shortest time possible. We pretend that the company offers decent working conditions, and therefore should ensure that its drivers are not unnecessarily exposed to the elements. We believe that the drivers are given an alternative location from where to operate with adequate protection.

Żminijietna tappella l-Arriva għal titjieb fil-kundizzjonijiet tal-ħaddiema.

Żminijietna – Leħen ix-Xellug tinsab mħassba għall-kundizzjonijiet primittivi li qed iħabbtu wiċċhom magħhom il-ħaddiema xufiera ta’ l-Arriva. Is-sistema li qed tiġi applikata mid-diriġenti ta’ l-Kumpanija, qed tħalli ħafna minn dawn il-ħaddiema jistennew barra fix-xemx, fl-akwati tal-Mall.
 
“Apparti li dawn il-kundizzjonijiet miżeri jnaqqsu fil-livell tas-servizz, dawn qed jitfgħu pressjoni żejda fuq l-istess xufiera. Il-kundizzjonijiet tal-ħaddiema għandhom jibqgħu jingħataw il-prijorita’ kollha fit-tħaddim tas-servizz ta’ Trasport Pubbliku”.

Nappellaw lill-Unjin u l-Awtorità ta’ Trasport Pubbliku biex jieħdu din il-problema bis-serjetà u jirriżolvuha flimkien mall-kumpanija fl-inqas żmien possibli. Min naħa tal-kumpanija nippretendu li din toffri kundizzjonijiet diċenti tax-xogħol, u għalhekk għandha tara li x-xufiera tagħha ma jkunux esposti għall-kundizzjonijiet klimali għalxejn, speċjalment bis-sħana qawwija tax-xemx, riħ, u kif ukoll bil-kesħa li ser jġiebu magħhom ix-xhur tax-xitwa. Nemmnu li għandu jinstabilhom post alternattiv minn fejn joperaw ix-xufiera, li jkun joffri kenn diċenti.
