Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The rail union says up to half of the rail maintenance workers in New South Wales could leave their jobs, after a breakdown in negotiations with the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) over a new draft enterprise agreement.
The Rail Tram and Bus Union says its members on secondment with the ARTC will be forced to take redundancies rather than accept the new pay and working conditions being offered.
It includes more than 200 state rail workers in Dubbo, Bathurst, Orange and Parkes and Broken Hill.
Doug Klineberg from the Rail Union says he will meet with the Transport Minister next week to see if he can guarantee that the ARTC will keep wages at their current level.
"I hope the alarm bells do go off and both stakeholders take the appropriate approach in regards to trying to ensure the maximum amount of people do go across to ARTC and take up direct employment," he said.
