CDC Victoria bus drivers will continue with planned industrial action tomorrow against the company after mediation talks held in good faith today failed to resolve outstanding issues between the parties.
The TWU gave notice to CDC Victoria last Friday afternoon that around 600 members planned to strike five times this week – including two 24-hour protected work stoppages.
The industrial action is part of an ongoing pay dispute with the Singapore-based multinational.
Tomorrow’s full stoppages will take place from 7am to 11am in Ballarat and from 6am to 10am out of Sunshine depot.
The parties will reconvene for Fair Work Commission mediation on Wednesday.
Full stoppages will take place this week at:
CDC Sunshine depot, Tuesday 24 July, from 6am to 10am.
CDC Ballarat depot, Tuesday 24 July, from 7am to 11am.
CDC Sunshine depot Friday 27 July, from 3pm to 7pm.
CDC Oakleigh depot for 24 hours from first bus on Thursday 26 July.
CDC Wyndham depot for 24 hours from first bus on Friday 27 July.
