Melbourne's tram network could be brought to a halt later this month at the same time as the city's train workers are threatening to strike, with Yarra Trams employees joining the fight for better pay.
More than 1500 Yarra Trams drivers, authorised officers and customer service staff could join their Metro counterparts in walking off the job by late July, The Age can reveal.
A tram strike looms.
The Rail, Tram and Bus Union has lodged an application with the Fair Work Commission to take the proposed strike action to a vote.
If the planned action is approved, it could coincide with a strike being planned by train drivers and station staff.
The Rail, Tram and Bus Union is in negotiations with public transport operators over its next enterprise bargaining agreement, and is pushing for a six per cent annual pay rise, over three years.
The Tram and Bus Division has been bargaining since March with KDR Victoria, which trades as Yarra Trams, but claims that the operator owned by international company Keolis Downer has rejected the bulk of the union's 107 claims.
The industrial action could involve up to 24-hour stoppages and a range of other bans on wearing uniforms, making announcements and doing overtime.
