Update: Non Payment of Time Worked at 150% when called in with less than 24 hours Notice

Apr 28, 2015Bulletins

Bulletin 24 – 2015

To: RTBU Signaller Sub-Division Members,

Further to our previous Bulletin Number 39/2014. We have been following up with Sydney Trains with regards to the Step 2 Dispute Notification in relation to the non-payment of 150% when called in to cover a shift with less than 24 hours notice.

The RTBU have carried out the following:

  • Raised the non-payment of the 150% dispute with Sydney Trains. This involved going into great detail as to why LICS, Signallers and Area Controllers are entitled to this money.
  • Held discussions with Sydney Trains and ensured that the payments have been paid from that point and forward into the future. However, the dispute about the back pay is still ongoing.
  • Put together the calculations for the past six (6) years for every grade and supplied the calculations to Sydney Trains.
  • Supplied a list of names to Sydney Trains as to who is part of the back pay claim.
  • The RTBU have also ensured that this item has been put on the agenda of all relevant meetings with Sydney Trains.

Sydney Trains have advised that they are still considering their position and are still in discussions with payroll and other areas.

Members are asked to be patient, as you can see from the information above there are many elements that have to be worked through but be assured that the RTBU team including your delegates will endeavour to get the best possible results for the affected members.

The RTBU will update the membership on this issue as the matter progresses. If you have any further questions or comments please contact your local delegate or the RTBU office.
