Peace for our time at ACTION

Simon Corbell has, metaphorically speaking, returned from Munich clutching a peace agreement with the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union (AMWU).

Mr Corbell said the ACT Government is pleased to announce a breakthrough in negotiations between ACTION and the AMWU resulting in an in-principle agreement on the remaining issues that are outstanding in the ACTION Enterprise Agreement.

“As such, there will be no further industrial action taken by AMWU members. This is a win for ACTION, a win for the AMWU and most importantly, a win for the travelling public,” Mr Corbell said.

Simon neglects to mention the details of the deal, but the ABC informs us that there’s a $650 cash bribe being called a sign on bonus and a 2.5% pay rise.

Now we just have to appease the Transport Workers Union, and still no mention of workplace reforms needed to make a decent transport system rather than a gold plated workplace.

What’s Your opinion?
