THE merit bonus paid to drivers anU conductors employed by Glasgow Corporation may be retained, despite the wage award. The undertaking's salaries and wages sub-committee have unanimously recommended that the bonus, which amounted to lis. a week, should continue. This decision now awaits confirmation by the conditions of service committee and the National Joint Industrial Council.
The system was introduced 18 months ago, but was suspended following the award. Representatives of the Transport and General Workers' Union, who have asked that it should be operated again, were present at the subcommittee's meeting.
Mr. E. R. L. Fitzpayne, general manager, said afterwards that before the bonus agreement, numbers of vehicles had to be withdrawn from service because of staff shortages and overtime difficulties. There had been a markedemprovement since the scheme came into operation.
