Train services back to normal


Train services returned to normal this afternoon as railcar drivers returned to the job after a stop-work meeting of members of the Rail, Bus and Tram Union.

Public Transport Authority Acting CEO Reece Waldock said today he was pleased the drivers had returned to work in time to meet the demands of the afternoon peak.

The meeting, which started at noon, was called to enable union representatives to report back to members on the progress of ongoing EBA (enterprise bargaining agreement) negotiations with the PTA.

Mr Waldock said positive progress had been made in the negotiations since a meeting at the WA Industrial Relations Commission on Wednesday.  The PTA’s offer had been enhanced to about seven per cent over two years, plus a range of additional improvements to allowances and conditions.

He understood the union would be meeting again in about two weeks for a further report to members.
