TWU Members driving buses for Sunbus in Cairns will be refusing to collect fares on Thursday the 23rd of February.
Refusal to collect fares is a form of industrial action that was overwhelmingly supported by TWU members at Sunbus Cairns, as part of their ongoing fight for a fair wage.
“This is just one way that drivers can choose to take industrial action” said TWU QLD Secretary Peter Biagini.
“Translink and Sunbus are still refusing to budge, meaning that action like this is likely to continue”
Only drivers who are members of the TWU will be legally allowed to participate in the action.
