Truck Driver Ed Cocq van Delwijnen called out company Fulton Hogan on overloading trucks. One month later they had sent the subbie broke by taking all his work off him – then they sacked him.
Meanwhile in QLD this week alone there have been four truck crashes, two fatal. We need to stop this before it happens which is what Ed was doing when he spoke out on overloading.
WHY WE NEED THE DRAFT ORDER FOR SAFE RATES TO BECOME FINAL
To change our working lives and save lives on the road we need the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal’s Draft Order holding companies to account for the safety of the trucks they send out on the road to become a final order.
“The draft order from Australia’s road safety watchdog, the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal will make these companies responsible for the trucks they send out on the road.
“When this Order goes through it will be a game-changer for Truck Drivers who will have less chance of getting killed every day they go to work – and make our roads safer for all of us.”
