Industrial action on Adelaide trams suspended

RTBU < 1 mins read

Media release | Tuesday 5 September 2023

Tram workers have suspended further industrial action on Adelaide’s tram system following an improved pay offer from the private operator Torrens Connect

Rail, Tram and Bus Union (RTBU) SA/NT Secretary Darren Phillips said the breakthrough in negotiations came on Monday night (4 September).

Tram workers will now consider the revised offer from Torrens Connect before deciding their next steps.

“Workers have been clear from day one that they wanted to address issues with their conditions, such as the use of split-shifts, and a decent ray rise that reflects the increasing cost of living.

“It was disappointing that workers needed to take industrial action in order to get Torrens Connect to take the issue of pay seriously.

“Public transport workers are passionate about their industry, and take their responsibilities to the travelling public seriously, so industrial action is always a last resort.

“We can assure all tram users that services are now back to normal while members consider the offer.”

The Brotherhood of St. Laurence


Growing Pains, a new research report from the Brotherhood of St. Laurence (BSL) and the University of Melbourne, has found that the current Family Tax Benefit (FTB) system is not meeting the needs of low-income families, while creating lifelong barriers to women’s economic security in Australia.
