80 glad to go


Share post:

There were mixed emotions at the state-owned Transport Board yesterday after 80 of its employees spent their last day on the job.

The staff from various departments volunteered to be separated or opted for early retirement from the cash-strapped corporation as it undergoes major restructuring.

Workers exchanged hugs and kisses, and offered each other well wishes, as many wished the board all the best for the future on receipt of their separation packages.

Oriel Clarke, who was with the board for 28 years, said he felt good to be going home.“To tell the truth, I feel good to be going home. . . It’s time to move on. A sportsman should bow out on top of his game, so I think a driver should bow out on top of his game [and] don’t wait to be pushed. I think this is the right time,” said Clarke, who is in his 50s.(DB)
