Goulburn MOU remains unsigned
The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the two-man working of the GB6 diagram has been altered at draft stage to allow for one-man operations in certain circumstances. CountryLink were sent the amended version four months ago by the RTBU and they have failed to certify this agreement.
CountryLink’s inability to endorse the draft MOU has resulted in the RTBU maintaining the terms and conditions of the original MOU until the amendment is certified. This means if a driver on that run is unavailable due to illness, CountryLink must find another driver. With the Goulburn depot already understaffed, this has resulted in the cancellation of some services to Canberra.
