How you can support transport reform

The urgent case for transport reform

In 2021, a Senate Inquiry into Road Transport made 10 recommendations to make road transport safer and fairer, including urgent reform in trucking to protect workers, businesses and road users.

These recommendations provide a blueprint to save trucking jobs, businesses and lives. 

First and foremost, Federal Parliament is being asked to pass reform to allow the Fair Work Commission to set fair, safe and viable standards for the transport industry.

The transport industry is asking Federal Parliament to pass this reform into law to end the crisis in transport and the slaughter on our roads.

Read the Without Trucks, Australia Stops report to see the full recommendations.
