Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
RailCorp and the major rail union will return to the Industrial Relations Commission today to try to resolve a pay dispute threatening future disruptions to train services.
RailCorp employees have been pushing since April for a five percent annual pay rise over four years.
If a deal is not reached at the I-R-C an industrial campaign will begin next Thursday with maintenance workers walking off the job.
Alex Claassens from the Rail, Tram and Bus Union says he hopes the dispute can be resolved quickly.
"We are trying to do whatever we can to limit the industrial action and we are trying to minimise it as much as we can," he said.
"But we can not rule out that at some point if we need to take serious industrial action then we will."
He says RailCorp is not negotiating fairly.
"They're saying to us we need you to give up more jobs to provide yourselves with a wage increase," he said.
"Now we're quite clearly saying that the people of New South Wales don't deserve this, we need to have more staff on stations not less."
