Aurizon Staff Agreement: Company Shows its true colours

The RTBU was contacted by an employee with 27 years’ service with the organisation (practically all his working life) who is an employee in transition.

He advised that yesterday evening, within an hour of the Fair Work Commission handing down its decision that the Aurizon Staff Agreement would be implemented from 28 January 2015, he received a phone call to advise that his employment would be terminated from 29 January 2015.

Well seeing no further attempts to find employment for this employee is to be contemplated.

This is a disgraceful, callous act on behalf of Aurizon and it certainly is likely to put a chill through the bones of most Aurizon employees. This is obviously an organisation that has little or no concern for the well-being of their employees.

Unity is Strength
