121 full-time train crew jobs made redundant across a handful of depots, mostly Pt Waratah and Port Kembla, but some at Greta and other places too.
All offered the option to lose their full-time job and come back as a direct-hired PN casual. Apparently some have taken VR, but word is that not enough did that or elect to go from full-time to casual, an forced redundancies are happening right now. Dunno any numbers, but no contracts have been lost in coal (except for Antiene which Aurizon won and I think starts middle of next year?).
PN employees out the door at the same time as Railtrain casuals being hired in droves. Seems to be the way rail in general is going in Australia as a way to give companies the edge to force staff to accept worse terms and conditions of employment, lower pay, and therefore have lower standards of living.
