Sydney and NSW Trains propose changes to TWP 102

Aug 30, 2016Loco Express

The RTBU Locomotive Division has been invited to commence initial discussions with both Sydney Trains and NSW Trains regarding proposed changes to TWP 102 – Authorised Persons Travelling in Crew Compartments.

The proposed changes would see drivers no longer permitted to travel passenger in the leading crew compartment when not performing their rostered duties.

The Loco Division is concerned by the potential increased safety risk our members may face as a direct result of this “blanket ban” approach as well as any potential action against members who do not comply.

The outcome of this initial meeting was to establish a working group which will identify and address all concerns and impacts while exploring possible alternatives, with the safety of our members as the paramount concern.

We’ll keep members informed of the outcome once the working group has met.
