Speed Camera Operators to Walk on Wednesday over Safety and Pay

Victoria's mobile road safety camera operators will walk off the job for 24 hours from midnight as their Employer, Serco Asia Pacific Pty Ltd, continues to have its head in the sand over their safety and pay.

Over two hundred (200) camera sessions were dropped over the long weekend as a result of Serco's incompetent attempt to diffuse our signage and administrative bans by docking the operators full pay for a session, so operators just stayed away.

Serco has already been fined by the State Government for missing their session KPI's for last December and failing to have camera cars on our roadways over the recent long weekend and Wednesday's 24 Hour strike should guarantee a January fail mark as well.

Operators earn barely more than the legal minimum wage at $26 per hour and being attacked while sitting in their vehicles doing their job, having oncoming cars and trucks cross carriageways to swerve at their stationery vehicle, projectiles launched at them as well as constant verbal abuse and social media harassment, to be met with silence from the contractor Serco, who don't seem to care about anything but shifting their profits off shore, is the last straw.

It's well past time for the State Government to review Serco's performance and consider alternatives for the delivery of this important road safety service and protect these government contracted workers.
