Industrial Action: Withdrawal of Notice for Rockhampton

Today, the RTBU notified Aurizon that we have determined to withdraw the Industrial Action scheduled for tomorrow at Rockhampton and will not seek to extend the overtime bans beyond the 7th January at this stage.

Meetings on the Agreements with Aurizon will occur over the next few days and the RTBU is prepared to see whether Aurizon is prepared to be more reasonable in these negotiations prior to making a decision on our next step.

I would like to extend our acclamation to those who have taken, and are currently taking, action during this stage in the campaign for fair and reasonable Agreements in Aurizon. Expressions of support have been received from their fellow workers (across unions) throughout the State.

I will ensure members are kept advised of all developments.

Unity is Strength
