Union wins crib breaks for all Veolia Tram workers

Jun 20, 2013Uncategorized

RTBU workplace Delegates at the Pyrmont Tram Depot became increasingly frustrated when Veolia Transport Sydney (VTS) refused to build crib breaks into members shifts as per the current enterprise agreement.

Tram and Bus Divisional President Gary Way referred the matter to Fair Work Australia where RTBU Industrial Officer and advocate Brenden Edghill (left) led the charge in conciliation proceedings.

After aggressive debate, VTS agreed to recognise the crib break entitlement.

Both Mr Edghill and Mr Way would like to acknowledge the determined efforts of the Pyrmont Depot Union Committee, Patrick Fielding, Mina Choi and Laura Benjamin, who all ensured that this dispute was pursued to our ultimate victory.
