Tram workers to vote on industrial action

Feb 14, 2012News

Sydney Light Rail members are a step closer to taking industrial action after unacceptable wage rises were put forward by Veolia Transport in EBA negotiations. 

The suggested pay rise, put forward after lengthy delays in progressive negotiations, pushed Tram and Bus Division members to advise their local delegates they are prepared to participate in a Fair Work Australia ballot for potected industrial action.

The application for a ballot was lodged with FWA on the 9th of February and the relevant documentation was served on Veolia Transport on the same day.

Members are encouraged to follow the progress of the negotiations and any subsequent disputes by staying in touch with their local delegate and looking for updates on Bus Express.
