SMH: Sydney bus privatisation plan is betrayal

May 16, 2017News
Tram and Bus Division Secretary Chris Preston told the Sydney Morning Herald this morning that bus drivers are furious about the recent decision to privatise scores of routes in Sydney’s inner west.
Mr Preston said workers had been told as recently as December that STA’s contract for bus regions in Sydney would remain after a restructure that included the axing of 200 back-office staff.

“This is the biggest betrayal this Minister Constance can do to these workers. The rest of Sydney’s bus drivers will be furious as well,” he said.
