Strong voter turn out a sign of union strength

The Bus Division would like to thank everyone that came out to vote in the recent ballot for drivers on the new EA.

It was great to see a strong turn out and great to see strong support within the membership for the offer negotiated with STA.

Whether voting for or against, 2500 drivers turned out to have their say – an excellent indication of member’s engagement.

Your union is only as strong as its members and the more people participate in union matters and decision making the better.

We hope to see this level of participation maintained and grown in the coming year.

The task for the Division now is to keep an eye on STA to make sure the necessary measures are put in place to deliver the pay increases contained within the Award.

We will be working hard to ensure these savings measures are rolled out as planned into the New Year.
