Central Station Staff: Disability Allowance Win!

Central Station Staff:

Disability Allowance Win!


RTBU Members have had an important win with a successful disability allowance assessment at Central Station. Together, we told management that assessments had to be completed to address the additional workplace challenges for members caused by major disruptive works.


If an assessment finds disruption above a certain level, members get additional compensation. Management had been delaying and avoiding assessments at many stations, but after RTBU members stuck together to insist the assessments were completed, management finally listened.


This week both NSW Train-Link and Sydney Trains Central Station were together assessed by the Disability Assessment Team consisting of staff members and management. We were represented by RTBU Delegate Terry Johnson.


Following the assessment, it was agreed that all Sydney Trains and NSW Train-link Central Station staff would be back paid the amount of 0.39c per hour from December 5th 2018.


Congratulations to all members involved in securing this allowance.
