Secretary’s wrap

Pacific National management has gone too far in its attempt to cut costs this time. The company has moved to stand down employees during track repairs which had been scheduled for months.Bob-Hayden-Divisional-Secretary

Things are certainly not that dire for the company that it needs to rob workers of their hard-earned pay to meet self imposed profit margins.

The Loco Division, with the assistance of the RTBU National Office, has disputed the move and has lodged a dispute in the Fair Work Commission. We will be seeking an injunction to stop the stand downs from occurring next week.

In better news, we’re currently undertaking a survey of RTBU members to hear what is important to you and to get an understanding of what issues you want to see the union campaigning on.

Please take the time to fill in the survey and have your voice heard. It only takes between 5 and 10 minutes to complete, but the information it will give us will be invaluable.

This is your union, so it’s important you tell us where you want us to focus our efforts.

I trust you’ll enjoy this edition of Loco Express.

Stay safe on the tracks

Bob Hayden

Secretary, Loco Division
