Aurizon Unsuccessful with Legal Challenge

As reported yesterday, Aurizon has commenced its first legal challenge against the upcoming industrial action. The matter was heard this morning and the RTBU legal team refuted the allegations submitted by Aurizon.

Aurizon had nine (9) representatives recorded in appearances, the majority lawyers but all nine
lives of this cat were lost. Our legal team was uccessful in the FairWork hearing and all RTBU
industrial action will go ahead as planned.

Our legal team consider that Aurizon may apply to another jurisdiction, the Federal Court, to
continue with their attempt to stop this action.

I will keep members posted of all developments.

Unity is Strength
