Union calls to protect workers from Light Rail fail!
There is shocking news today as it was revealed that the Inner West Light Rail trams would be off the tracks for the next 18 months.
The Union immediately called for all employees to be given meaningful work and for the government to ensure they suffered no loss of income.
This is a known fault with this model tram and it should not be workers who suffer because the government habitually goes for the cheapest option available.
Like other transport workers in NSW, these members have worked through uncertain times during the pandemic with the government changing the rules week by week and sometimes day by day. The government needs to give an immediate and unequivocal guarantee that no worker will be worse off.
