The RTBU has spent the past few months doing the grunt work for the big year that lies ahead.
With all major public transport enterprise agreements up in 2023, now is our chance to make our mark in a post-pandemic world.
Last year we started the process of identifying key claims by reaching out to members, conducting our EA survey, and evaluating the
provisions of the current agreement.
As we have continued to review new legislation, explore claims, and hold discussions with members across the network, we have formulated strategy to tackle your agreements head-on and set a new benchmark for the years ahead.
Engagement with members across the network has clearly marked job security as the top priority followed by wages and increased powers to hold management accountable.
In the coming weeks we will be convening a meeting of all Delegates to discuss the detail of our core claims, agree upon strategy and establish representative bargaining teams.
With major projects coming online including level crossing removals, the metro tunnel, airport link and suburban rail loop now is a critical time for
us to stay focused on the big picture and secure the conditions members will rely upon as we face continuing changes in technology.
We strongly encourage members to speak to their Delegates regarding the upcoming EA process.
As discussed with members last year, we will launch an EA website to provide members with timely updates.
