April 10, 2024


With another busy start to 2024 it’s great to see members out there taking up the fight.


NJ Ashton are on the verge of signing off on their first EA. This EA could potentially be industry leading in the tip truck sector. The initial site for NJ Ashton is Marulan, however, over the last 18 months we have seen NJ Ashton grow to have sites in Woonona, Eastern Creek, Peats Ridge and Tomago.

Bus Terminus win

We have received confirmation from Wollongong City Council and Transport for NSW that the lease for the current site – at Marine Drive – where the Wollongong Bus Terminus currently sits will be extended until the completion of the new bus terminus. 

This means our bus drivers will continue to have a safe place to park up to have their breaks and use amenities, rather than a potential proposed stop gap facility until the new terminus is built.  

A long fight at Cleanawy Unanderra

Cleanaway Unanderra, who have been negotiating their EA since 2022, have had their situation heard in the FWC. The FWC have determined the situation is now intractable and an outcome needs to be arbitrated. Congratulations to all of the Cleanaway members who have stuck to their guns and got the situation to where it currently sits. A long fight in an extremely tough environment has a finish line and end goal in sight.   

EA’s a plenty at Boral

Boral Drivers out of Berrima, Maldon, Dunmore and Port Kembla amongst others in the South Coast will begin negotiations for their new enterprise agreements. These EA’s will cover the Tanker, Tipper, Agitator and Packaged Cement Drivers. 

South Coast Equipment

Wollongong based South Coast Equipment will kick off their EA negotiations this month in an attempt to raise pay rates amongst other improvements across their EA.
