Last week Philip Cooksey was elected with an overwhelming majority as the union delegate for the Port Botany depot. He had been a caretaker in that role since last October and has been actively involved in the union for the last couple of years.
“Phil will make a great delegate. He is incredibly committed, calm on the job and always cool headed. Congratulations Phil,” said president of the Bus & Tram Division, Gary Way.
Thanks also goes to Frank Farkus who nominated for the delegate’s position in the election.
You can check out Phil’s delegate profile on the Delegate‘s page.
Strong voter turn out a sign of union strength
The Bus Division would like to thank everyone that came out to vote in the recent ballot for drivers on the new EA.
It was great to see a strong turn out and great to see strong support within the membership for the offer negotiated with STA.
Whether voting for or against, 2500 drivers turned out to have their say – an excellent indication of member’s engagement.
Your union is only as strong as its members and the more people participate in union matters and decision making the better.
We hope to see this level of participation maintained and grown in the coming year.
The task for the Division now is to keep an eye on STA to make sure the necessary measures are put in place to deliver the pay increases contained within the Award.
We will be working hard to ensure these savings measures are rolled out as planned into the New Year.
The Burwood election has now been declared.
Congratulations go to Mark Delohery who will now be your representative in Burwood. Read more »

Dollars and sense at STA
Tell us what is REALLY going to make STA more efficient.
All members will be aware that STA CEO Peter Rowley has done a tour of depots trying to convince drivers to accept changes to the Enterprise Agreement he negotiated with drivers not one year ago - all in the name of "efficiency"....
