Minister Constance’s betrayal: Transport Minister Shoots From the Hip – Again

May 19, 2017Media releases News

Transport Minister Andrew Constance’s decision to escalate the dispute over privatisation of buses to the Supreme Court shows he has no ability to manage his portfolio, RTBU Bus Division Secretary Chris Preston said today.

“This is a Minister that shoots from the hip, he rules through lawyer and media release – rather than talking to the community and his workforce.”

“The public transport workforce has no confidence in Andrew Constance and after this week’s events it seems the public has no confidence either.”

“If Minister Constance believes he can sue his way to privatising Sydney’s bus system against the wishes of the community and public transport workers he is gravely mistaken.”

“The Supreme Court action will do nothing to resolve these issues and we again call on the Premier to intervene and bring her Minister into line.”
