Update: QR Agreement Negotiations

On Friday last week in the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (QIRC), your Union and Queensland Rail were directed to continue talks that involved delegates and report back to the Commission on Monday, 29 September.

Your Union attended a meeting between Queensland Rail and other Unions to propose a timetable, a suggested schedule for meetings along with a series of short meetings to take place prior to the report back on the 29 September.

The RTBU is, as we have repeatedly reported, keen for a negotiated settlement that is satisfactory for our members to be achieved and will continue to pursue this with or without the involvement of the QIRC.

The Commissioner has advised that he will also consider formalisation of the process requested by Queensland Rail on the 29 September.

Members will be kept informed of all developments.

Unity is Strength
