Sydney Trains Guards: Future Operations Ballot

Sydney Trains Guards: Future Operations Ballot

Your RTBU team has heard from members in the current depot tour that the vote on the proposed Future Operations agreement needs to be separated into two votes. That would mean one vote on the aggregation of the Cab Allowance and Security Allowance into Base Rate; and one vote on the Working on a Book Off Day Payment.

The RTBU Train Guards Sub-Division requested that change and we were successful. The electronic ballot for Future Operations will consist of separate “Yes” or “No” questions for each proposal.

Due to this change, the opening of the ballot will be delayed by one week to enable additional depot meetings to answer any further questions.

The Ballot will now open at 8am Friday 3rd November and close at midnight on Wednesday 8th November 2017.

The RTBU Train Guards Sub-Division encourages all Members to participate in the voting process.

If members have any questions about Future Operations of the changed ballot process please contact your local delegate or Head Office at 9264 2511
