For more than 20 years the Transport Workers’ Union has campaigned side by side with truckies, their families, businesses and road users across Australia to address the safety crisis that makes truck driving our most dangerous industry.
The Gillard Government has listened to our message and the Road Safety Remuneration Bill passed the Australian parliament on March 20th. We will now have a tribunal where we have the opportunity to hold clients to account and take the pressure out of the cab. By standing together we have created history- the world’s first law that makes clients responsible for the safe transportation of their goods.
This legislation gives us the opportunity to make conditions better for everyone in the industry, but it is only the first step.
