RTBU Applies for an Extension of Protected Action Period

I refer members to our recent circulars (link below) in respect of the Aurizon negotiations and industrial campaign. The RTBU 30 day period for protected industrial action has expired but earlier this week the Union submitted an application to Fair Work to extend the protected action period by another 30 days which was approved today.

Whilst no action has been planned at this point, the RTBU has naturally kept the opportunity to use this legitimate option.

Negotiations have recommenced in respect of some areas and other areas will be recommencing negotiations next week. I will ensure members are kept apprised of all developments in this respect.

Unity is Strength
