Covid impact on truckies
Covid restrictions are affecting truck drivers trying to do essential work.
That’s because these workers have stood up as a collective and fought hard for their job security.
Congrats to all of you who participated in this 2021 industry fight, whether that was going out on strike, voting in a PAB, or even just being part of your union. Together we are stronger.
These agreements lock in key job security provisions, as well as fair pay and super increases, setting the stage for when we’re back at the bargaining table in 2023.

Transport workers are fighting for a fairer, safer industry. Join them today and secure your future.
