Steph Ryan MP:
More Delays for Country Train Passengers at Christmas

Ugly pay dispute with the state’s transport union causes more delays for train.

By Portal Admin - 15th December 2019 - Back to News

Regional train passengers have been caught in the middle of Daniel Andrews’ ugly pay dispute with the state’s transport union.

Reports today confirm strike action will derail travel in the lead up to the busy Christmas period, as the Andrews Labor Government wars with the Rail, Tram and Bus Union over pay negotiations.

Overtime bans and rolling stop work action across all regional rail lines will take place from December 11 to December 20, including 24 hour stoppages that will see all train services cancelled.

It comes on top of the constant delays and cancellations already faced by regional passengers.

Comment attributable to Shadow Minister for Regional Pubic Transport Steph Ryan

Regional train passengers already put up with constant delays and cancellations to services, but it’s set to get a whole lot worse because of the industrial chaos under Daniel Andrews.

Regional passengers deserve to be able to go about their lives and enjoy the holidays without being stuck in the middle of this ugly dispute that Daniel Andrews is washing his hands of.

Before the election, Daniel Andrews marched in the streets with his union mates, now they want money he has wasted elsewhere, and it’s country passengers who are caught in the crossfire.

Regional rail has become a disaster under Daniel Andrews and his embattled Public Transport Minister Melissa Horne.
