Thank you for your hard-work and commitment during 2014.
Many challenges were thrown our way throughout the past 12 months, but in the true spirit of NSW Locomotive Division members we stood strong together and took head on all the hurdles we were faced with.
We’ve had some great wins this year – with many enterprise agreements which were up for negotiation securing fair wages and conditions for members into the future.
We stood shoulder to shoulder at picket lines; many member and delegate meetings were standing room only; and we showed solidarity with the community at countless rallies and local events and other Transport Workers.
We farewelled many a great Locomotive Division member this year, and we wish them all well in their next endeavours, and take time to remember our colleagues who have sadly passed but have not been forgotten.
Everyone has certainly deserved a break this year, and we hope that you all have the opportunity to take some time out over the festive break to relax with friends and family.
Thank you once again for everything you have done for your colleagues and commuters this year, and we look forwarding to working with you all again in 2015 as we continue to strengthen the Loco Division in preparation for the ongoing Employer attacks which we will all continue to confront next year.
Have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Stay safe.
Bob Hayden, Loco Division Secretary
and your Divisional Executive: Brett Rosser, Andrew Holt, Mark Supple, John Sotiriou and David Mathie
