200-plus trucks, vans, cars and buses arrived at Macquarie Street from three strategic starting points, our new union home in Minchinbury, Port Botany and Lane Cove. We were a force to be reckoned with!
And yes, we messed up the city and traffic on the Sydney Harbour Bridge. We made sure the message was loud and clear, we need urgent action.
Some great images of the day
The transport industry is in crisis. It’s Australia’s deadliest industry with the highest rates of financial stress and a higher risk of mental health issues.
Over 530 people have died on the roads since the dismantling of the tribunal by the (then) Turnbull government so some traffic chaos is a small price to pay.
We will not stop the fight for a safer and fairer industry for transport workers in every workplace for every day, every shift and every worker.
Safe Rates – lives depend on it.
