RTBU SA/NT Secretary Darren Phillips today said the meeting was essential in order to move the long-running dispute closer to a resolution.

“Adelaide Metro workers have been without a new agreement since the previous one expired at the end of 2013.

“We have recently made significant progress on a number of important issues, but a number of other items remain outstanding.

“It’s now getting to crunch time.  It’s vital that workers have an opportunity to speak to their negotiating team so they can be fully informed about the details.

All RTBU members will be invited

“All RTBU members at Adelaide Metro will be invited to the meeting and given an opportunity to participate in the discussion.

“While we recognise the stop work meeting will cause more disruption to services, we have timed it to avoid any impact on the morning or afternoon peaks. 

“Most importantly, this will be an important step towards finally resolving our enterprise negotiations, so our members can get on with their jobs and commuters can get on with theirs.”
