Tranzurban media statement: Response to union action
RESPONSE TO UNION ACTION
Comments by Paul Snelgrove, managing director of Tranzit Group:
“Monday was always going to be a big day, but the union action in the Hutt Valley will not have a significant impact.
“We’ve got the drivers we need and they’re 100% committed to doing what’s required to get everyone to where they need to go. I couldn’t be prouder of the way our team has pulled together.
“This is a trumped up action based on false claims.
“Everything the union has claimed has been proven to be untrue. Our drivers are paid and treated well. No driver works 14 hours. It has been independently verified that we offer some of the best hourly rates and terms and conditions in the country.
“The union is punishing commuters – and its own members – for no good reason.”
