287 CROSSES: THIS GRAVEYARD MUST NOT GROW
Release date: 26/11/2009
The TWU’s campaign for Safe Rates continues at Federal Parliament. The graveyard will travel around Australia over coming months.
The crosses are a sad symbol of those killed in truck crashes in the twelve months since the National Transport Commission criticised:
ECONOMIC PRESSURE COSTS LIVES
- LOW RATES OF PAY
- INCENTIVE-BASED PAYMENT METHODS (SUCH AS PER KILOMETRE OR PER TRIP)
- UNPAID WORKING TIME AND DEMURRAGE
- THE HYPER-COMPETITIVE NATURE OF THE INDUSTRY AND
- THE LOW BARGAINING POWER FACED BY DRIVERS
The TWU will never forgo its responsibility to the public and its members to fight for a safer transport industry.
