Mortdale route knowledge training
The long-running dispute over the training of drivers at Mortdale has finally been resolved.
The Loco Division has been calling for additional training to be provided to Mortdale drivers following the new infrastructure changes associated with the upgrade at Glenfield station.
The dispute has now ben resolved, with Sydney Trains agreeing in the Fair Work Commission to provide the necessary training.
Starting this month, Mortdale drivers will be provided with the opportunity to traverse the required routes in accordance with TWP 108 and receive a briefing on the associated signalling and infrastructure changes followed by an assessment on the knowledge gained.
Once completed, Mortdale drivers will once again be fully qualified for all aspects of this area in accordance with the provisions of the current EA.
If any issues or questions arise regarding this training members should contact their local delegate or the RTBU office.
The Loco Division would like to take this opportunity to thank all who participated for their determination and patience in successfully achieving this good outcome.
