NSW Government meets with the union over Newcastle privatisation

Feb 3, 2016News

Last week saw the NSW government meet with the union over plans to privatise Newcastle Buses.

The government has revealed that 12 companies have responded to the “market sounding”, and that they have shown “strong support” for the integrated service of buses, ferries, and light rail.  This confirms union suspicion that the real reason behind the sell off of Newcastle’s public transport was to sweeten the deal for a private company to come along and build the proposed light rail.
