Message from the Divisional Secretary

Oct 31, 2016News

It was a tragic end to the week on Friday when we learnt about the death of Brisbane bus driver Manmeet Sharma.

On Wednesday 2 November we are asking all drivers to drive with their lights on in a mark of respect. Many drivers are also wearing black arm bands and we support that initiative.

The shock and outpouring of grief across our community continues and this is our way of saying we won’t forget.

Please be assured that the union will be keeping a close eye on the investigation being commissioned by Queensland Health regarding mental health treatment provided to the man accused of this horrible crime.

All health departments and transport departments should engage with that review and ensure that everything possible is done to prevent this type of violent crime from ever happening again.

We deserve a safe work place.
