Light Rail wins in 2012

Dec 6, 2012News

Light Rail workers have stood strongly together to negotiate a new Enterprise Agreement that will see 18% pay rises over 4 years with no losses to working conditions.

Members have long argued for pay rises that would bring wages in line with those of their counterparts in other cities and this outcome will go some way to closing that gap without affecting conditions.

This result also comes with overdue recognition of the important role that Pyrmont Depot has within the Division, by giving Sydney Light Rail workers their rightful voice.

Through tough bargaining from the union, backed by strong support from local delegates, members have had some great wins this year.

It is when we stand together that we achieve the best outcomes.
