The new interim Bus Operator Award was ratified last Friday, August 19, before Justice Staff at the industrial relations commission.

The award will see bus operators receive a 2.5% pay rise, back paid until June 12. This payment will go through in the off pay-week beginning August 31.

The union award negotiating team has already met with the STA in the hope that increases greater than 2.5% can be achieved.

We’ll keep you updated on the progress of these negotiations through your local delegate.
