Tranzurban media statement: Response to union action

RESPONSE TO UNION ACTION

Comments by Paul Snelgrove, managing director of Tranzit Group:

“It’s a trumped up action. Everything the union’s claimed has been proven to be untrue – our drivers are paid and treated well. That’s always been our way and it’s why we’ve been in this industry for close to 100 years.

“Our preparations for a busy week starting on Monday have gone really well, and we’ll deal with this situation too. But it’s a real shame that the union seems intent on punishing commuters.

“We’ve said we’ve got no issue discussing a possible collective agreement for union members. What we won’t do is engage with people who think scare-mongering and intimidation of our staff is the way to get what they want.”
