Community backs our essential bus drivers

May 1, 2020Uncategorized

There has been a huge surge of public support towards our members as they brave the streets and continue to keep the wheels turning for our communities. It is a true testament to their hard work and dedication that they are up every morning keeping the public transport system functioning for those who need it.

Recently, over 600 emails were sent to the Tram and Bus Division thanking bus drivers for their hard work and were much appreciated by the division. They also served to highlight the critical part played by tram and bus members in surviving this crisis even though they may not get the recognition they deserve. 

The division is very proud of the work members are doing and continue to do in this unprecedented crisis. 

“We want to thank the community for their support in these challenging times and acknowledge how supportive they have been. Members have really been toughing out there and seeing positive messages like this makes a world of difference,” said RTBU NSW Tram and Bus Division Secretary David Babineau.

“Our members are essential workers and sometimes it takes a crisis to show just how valuable the work they do can be for our most vulnerable. We ask that you continue to support our members as they navigate through this pandemic.”
