PA member Update
PA members vote to commence industrial action from Friday 3 September!
Professionals Australia members yesterday (30 August) endorsed commencement of industrial action and we have notified Sydney Trains of our intentions to commence industrial action.
You can read our notification letters here. Sydney & NSW Trains Notices
Members endorsed a plan of industrial action for the coming weeks on the back of the strong endorsement by members of the PAB, with over 90% of members voting yes to all but 1 question in the PAB, which received 89%.
We are adding a section to our webpage where you can view current and upcoming industrial actions, that section is also linked in this article below.
Initially members endorsed some conservative actions.
You can view the full list of actions members can take here:
You can also view our Industrial Action Q&A here.
Members call on Sydney Trains and NSW Trains to get real and come to the table with real proposals, not wholesale cuts to important provisions and entitlements that our members enjoy such as:
- The deed;
- Rostering arrangements;
- The DSP;
- The consultation clause; and
- Right to not have to work more than 2 weekends a month.
A great time to join
Members are encouraged to speak to your colleagues about joining Professionals Australia, and using our industrial action as a conversation starter to this end.
