SUPPORT THE DRIVERS!
ACTION Bus Drivers and Staff will hold a 24-hour work stoppage this Friday 25th. They are asking for your support.
Drivers are currently engaged in an industrial campaign for a new Enterprise Bargaining Agreement that doesn’t reduce hard-won pay and conditions.
Management are trying to force through changes including compulsory weekend shifts without penalty rates, plans to remove part-time worker restrictions, a change in the employment composition toward majority part-time, and an effective pay cut.
The modest demands put forward by the TWU – that employment and wage conditions simply remain the same – have been largely dismissed by ACTION, who threatened drivers with severe fines for participating in a planned fare-strike.
Our drivers will not accept these attacks by management, and will need our support in their upcoming action.
Workers Solidarity Canberra plans to hold a public demonstration to coincide with the industrial action, and to make a visible display of our support for the drivers.
Please join us, bring your friends, and show the ACT Government that we value our public transport service and support our bus drivers.
‘SUPPORT THE DRIVERS’ RALLY.
FRIDAY 25th from 12pm.
