Your new Jolimont/MCG tram stop
Public transport passengers are in for a week of pain, with train and tram staff set to strike later this month over new workplace deals.
The protected industrial action by the Rail, Tram and Bus Union will see train members walk off the job on Tuesday August 27 and tram members shutdown services on Friday August 30.
State secretary of the union, Luba Grigorovitch, announced the tram stoppage today, saying the protest would be an “off-peak” between 10am and 2pm.
The train outages were flagged earlier this month.
Yarra Trams says the action is unnecessary and “we share our passengers’ frustration”.
But the militant union boss flagged it was a “first step” and that more action was likely unless Yarra Trams stops “playing games and instead get serious about bargaining”.
“Our members have emphatically rejected a substandard EBA offer from Yarra Trams on two occasions because neither offer respected or valued their hard work”, Ms Grigorovitch said.
“We are trying our best to minimise any inconvenience to commuters.”
