Inaugural National PN HSR Conference A Huge Success!
The very first RTBU PN HSR Conference was held yesterday (Wednesday 20 May).
There was great turnout with Representatives from Intermodal, Coal and Bulk Divisions across the Driver, Terminal Operator and Maintainer ranks.
HSRs and WHSE Committees are crucial in keeping Members safe at work, but for some time there has been gaps in training, committee structures and quorums and support.
This Conference is the first step in closing those gaps and allowing the free-flow of information between HSRs across the country. Support will continue through regular national meetings, email forums and sharing information specifically on dealing with issues that may seem to be isolated but are in fact PN wide.
Yesterday’s meeting was the opportunity for HSRs to meet one another, talk about issues pertaining to their workplaces and the broader national issues. A massive thank you to those who were able to attend, and for those that weren’t, we’ll see you at the next one. Stay tuned for further updates and the date for the June conference.
STANDING UNITED FOR A SAFE WORKPLACE
Did You Know?
If a worker requests that one or more HSRs be elected for the workplace, your Employer must make arrangements to establish one or more work groups.
Within 14 days of this request, the employer must begin negotiating with the workers and HSRs. The Union can assist in forming work groups and referring matters for resolution.
