BANGKOK, 10 Dec 2013, Acting Transport Minister Chadchart Sittipunt is ready to work as an interim minister until the next administration has been formed.
The acting minister yesterday visited employees of the Thai Airways International Public Company Limited at Suvarnabhumi Airport after hearing that they would go on strike on the day. His concerns were particularly the check-in counter receptionists and baggage unloading employees, who primarily serve the Thai Airways as well as other airlines.
According to Mr. Chadchart, there are no irregularities in the number of employee taking a day off, and the Thai Airways continued its operation normally. He thanked civil servants, the Transport Ministry’s employees and officials for considering the benefit of the public first and expressing their political opinions without disrupting their works.
He said that as an acting minister he would do his duty the best of his ability, specifically in managing civil servants and employees of his ministry, until the next administration is formed as stated in the Section 180.
