Michael has been fighting for the rights of transport workers for over 20 years ...
The Supreme Court found that Cleanaway failed “to eliminate or minimise the risk” of danger to employees through inadequate training:
The initial $12 million fine, now slashed to only $3 million, is a slap on the wrist for a company that continues to have appalling safety practices.
TWU SA members have grave concerns for the safety of workers and the public as Cleanaway attempts to slash pay through rostering changes and pay increases less than half of inflation that will force them to work longer and faster to make ends meet. Workers are already struggling to manage fatigue and fear this would worsen under Cleanaway’s proposal.
While SA members may have to consider taking industrial action, serious safety issues at the company continue around the country.
Transport workers are fighting for a fairer, safer industry. Join them today and secure your future.
