Disciplinary Matters Dispute

Nov 6, 2015News

The Loco Division is going to the Fair Work Commission in December over NSW Trains disciplinary process.

The RTBU has decided to pursue the matter in the Fair Work Commission in order to overturn a particular penalty that was handed down.

In the case in question, the RTBU Locomotive Division believes that the punishment did not fit the crime, so to speak. As such, the Union is challenging NSW Trains’ ability to hand down any penalty that they see fit without giving consideration to whether or not these punishment are fair or reasonable.

Members will be advised once this has gone to arbitration and an outcome delivered. If the RTBU is successful with this particular case, every employee of Sydney and NSW Trains will have recourse to challenge a disciplinary outcome in the Fair Work Commission instead of only having access to the TfNSW Appeals Board.
