Region 7 Industrial Wins
We’re celebrating two recent industrial wins in Region 7.
Firstly, the union has won a commonsense victory with Busways removing the trial of laminated journals, taking the issue away from a dispute. Busways have agreed to sit down with the union at a later date to go through a proper consultation process.
We had another win in the artic shifts also not going down the dispute path after Busways agreed that anyone who is rostered on an artic shift will be paid the articulated allowance whether they operate the bus or not. The company has indicated this to be effective from the pay period on the 19th of September, pending any payroll software issues. This will remain in place until a replacement Enterprise Agreement is approved.
