Member for McEwen Supports Safe Rates

February 3, 2012
Federal Member for McEwen, Rob Mitchell, met with Assistant Branch Secretary John Berger, to sign the Pledge to make our roads safer.

The Federal Government introduced its long-awaited Safe Rates legislation into the House of Representatives.
The Road Safety Remuneration Bill 2011, establishes the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal which will have the ability to set pay or pay-related conditions to ensure safe driving practices.

The Government believes that the Tribunal will save lives by ensuring that truck drivers are paid reasonably for the work they do, getting rid of the economic incentive for drivers to take unacceptable risks on our roads.
