Drivers back paid as talks continue
The new interim Bus Operator Award was ratified last Friday, August 19, before Justice Staff at the industrial relations commission.
The award will see bus operators receive a 2.5% pay rise, back paid until June 12. This payment will go through in the off pay-week beginning August 31.
The union award negotiating team has already met with the STA in the hope that increases greater than 2.5% can be achieved.
We’ll keep you updated on the progress of these negotiations through your local delegate.
