SAFE RATES ABOLISHED – SHAME TURNBULL, SHAME LAZARUS

QLD delegates travelled to Canberra to continue the fight to save Safe Rates but because of a dodgy deal, debate on this crucial safety measure for the transport industry was gagged and the the RSRT was

abolished late at night.

This was a shameful move from a government that is so painfully out of touch.

Weeks of misinformation and outrageous scare mongering saw desperate Politicians using transport workers as political pawns in a game where their sole objective is not to reduce deaths on our roads but to get

themselves reelected.

This is a shocking setback for the industry but as unionists we know that no significant change that workers need has every come from the top down.

We will continue to work together – led by members and delegates across QLD and indeed across the country – to again execute our argument that safe rates equals safe roads.
