Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
New South Wales train services could be disrupted next month as Railcorp workers push for a bigger pay rise.
The state's rail workers are expected to vote this week in favour of taking industrial action as they campaign for a 5 per cent pay rise over three years, two times the State Government's offer.
Negotiations are continuing but rail employees are losing patience after their enterprise bargaining agreement expired in April
Rail, Train and Bus Union divisional secretary Alex Claassens says the workers could take strike action if talks stall, disrupting train services.
"It may be a fare-free day," he said.
"We're just not sure as to what [the action] would look like at this point in time. It will depend on where we are in the negotiating process.
"Strike action though would be the last thing we would actually do."
Mr Claassens says it is time the State Government made a proper offer.
"They need to put somebody at the negotiating table that has the authority to make the decisions," he said.
He says once that happens, an agreement should be reached.
