South East Melbourne’s Speed Camera Cars off road today ahead of 48 Hour Weekend Stoppage

Community and Public Sector Union - Victoria < 1 mins read

UPDATE:

Speed Camera Cars will be off the road right across Melbourne's south eastern suburbs today ahead of this coming Weekends 48 hour stoppage.

There will be no camera cars on the roads today from Carrum to Frankston to Portsea & also greater Dandenong area thru Cranbourne to Bunyip with operator industrial action & breakdowns 

Motorists should observe all speed limits and exercise caution and drive safely as they head off for the weekend.

 

Speed Cameras Off Road this coming Weekend for 48 hours

Mobile road safety camera operators will escalate their industrial action this weekend with a forty-eight hour (48) walk off commencing midnight Friday.

Again, the state government contracted multinational employer Serco Asia Pacific pty ltd plays silly delaying games to frustrate a resolution of this safety and pay dispute.

Instead of improving safety and hourly pay rates of the lowest paid workers in Victoria the employer has decided to re-survey staff on variations of its rejected proposals.

Instead of increasing their rejected pay offer, Serco has just remixed the same overall amount to con operators that they are addressing the issues that remain in dispute.

These stoppages will continue until safety suggestions are adopted and acceptable salary and condition improvements come forward that deal with cost of living pressures.

ENDS

Urgent call for youth homelessness funding after 18 years of neglect

Council to Homeless Persons (CHP) has urged the Victorian Government to tackle the youth homelessness crisis with a comprehensive strategy in the upcoming state budget. As homelessness among young Victorians reaches critical levels, immediate action is needed to provide both housing and support services. CHP CEO Deborah Di Natale said: "The last youth homelessness strategy released 18 years ago is now old enough to vote. "That should be a major wake-up call for the Allan government, which has a huge opportunity to end almost two decades of neglect. "Nearly 16,000 young Victorians found themselves seeking help from homelessness services last…
