Secretary’s wrap

Dec 16, 2016Secretary's run-down

Another year is drawing to a close and I’d like to take the opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas on behalf of everyone here at the Loco Division.

The festive season can be a particularly busy time for many Loco members and I hope you will all have an opportunity to relax and spend quality time with your families and friends.

With Liberal governments at both the state and federal level it’s been a difficult year for workers and particularly difficult for transport workers.

We’ve had to deal with:

  • The NSW government’s job cuts, privatisation agenda and bad planning decisions and unfortunately that’s going to continue into the new year.
  • Both Public and Private sector employers seeking to constantly attack and undermine conditions, solidarity and job security.

I want to thank all of you for continuing to show solidarity and unity to your fellow members and stand strong in the face of these attacks. The Loco Executive and I look forward to continuing to work with all Delegates and Members again next year to protect jobs, rights and conditions.

Enjoy the festive season and stay safe.

Bob Hayden

Loco Division Secretary
