In Principle Agreement

Yesterday Traincrew, AER and Operations negotiations team reached an in principle agreement with Aurizon.

The terms of which will include a 4% pay raise per year for the next 3 years for all employees covered by the agreement.

The Agreement in Principle will be subject to final drafting of clauses over the next fortnight and a document should be available for members by the end of June with voting to take place in July
Members will be able to consider the proposed agreement when the final draft is distributed.

I wish to thank the delegates for their tireless pursuit for improvements for their fellow Traincrew and Operations members in an atmosphere which included the termination of previous agreements and ongoing legal challenges squarely aimed at stripping away 120 years of hard fought and won provisions of Aurizon workers.

Unity is Strength
