KMB and LWB announce Wage Review Plan 2022

The Kowloon Motor Bus Co. (1933) Ltd. (“KMB”) and Long Win Bus Company Limited (“LWB”) announce today (13 July 2022) that all staff will receive a pay raise of 3.5%. The effective date of the salary increase for Operational and Maintenance staff will date back to 1 June 2022, while that for clerical staff will come into effect on 1 September 2022.

The patronage of KMB and LWB has dropped amid various external factors including the unstable pandemic situation, transit arrangements not yet resumed normal and expansion of the railway network. In addition, the high oil price level has caused operational costs to soar. All these factors have shown no signs of relief in the short term, leading to a challenging operational environment.

Having the operational situation, market environment, and results of the pay trend survey considered, as well as the dedication, professionalism and perseverance of our staff during this hardship, KMB and LWB have come up with this year’s Wage Review Plan.

The spokesperson of KMB would like to thank representatives of the Motor Transport Workers General Union KMB Branch and LWB Branch, and the Kowloon Motor Bus Workers General Union and its Long Win Bus Branch for their proactive and practical communication on the wage review. KMB and LWB would like to express their gratitude to colleagues for their understanding of the companies in the face of the challenging business environment. We look forward to staying united with employees and providing passengers with safe, reliable and quality services.
