Simon Corbell has announced the agreement he’s reached with the Transport Workers Union to keep the buses rolling.
“It is important that the Government and the TWU reach a position quickly to ensure that bus services continue to run without interruption from industrial action, and this agreement is one that should prevent any further inconvenience to the travelling public.”
Key aspects of the government’s offer include:
• a 2.5 percent pay increase for 2010-11 followed by a three percent pay increase in 2011-12 and 2012-13
• a $650 sign on bonus;
• improved weekend rostering arrangements; and
• increased workforce flexibility in workshops.
Here’s hoping it meets with the comrade’s approval.
