Go Card Employee Travel

7 June 2013

Your union was shocked to hear via the media that Queensland Rail employees were to be issued a Go Card for home and duty travel and on duty travel while travelling on the Brisbane suburban network. This Go Card was said to be replacing the current Home and Duty pass that is currently issued for undertaking this travel.

The RTBU this week sent correspondence to the Queensland Rail CEO, seeking a meeting to discuss this proposal so we could obtain further detail on this issue and express memberís concerns to Queensland Rail.

This meeting was held today with senior Queensland Rail management and as a result of this meeting Queensland Rail have committed to taking our concerns away to obtain further information and report back at a meeting with the RTBU.

At this time we understand that a trial of the Go Card will commence in July with senior management participating in this trial which will run for 3 months at this stage.

I will ensure that members are kept up to date with developments.

Unity is Strength
