Peak body Road Freight NSW (RFNSW) is warning of the financial and practical impacts of significant rate increases as a result of the Transport Workers Union’s (TWU) proposed variations to the General Carriers Contract Determination (GCCD).
As a consequence of a TWU’s Application filed in the Industrial Relations Commission of NSW to vary the rates payable under the GCCD, Principal Carriers could be subjected to substantial increases of between 6 and 6.64% on the standing rates and between 11 and 14.68% on the running rates.
On the eve of its 2019 industry conference, peak body Road Freight NSW (RFNSW) has welcomed the decision to scrap a controversial road law forcing truckies and other drivers to slow-down to 40km/h whilst passing stationary emergency vehicles with flashing lights on freeways and major roads with speed limits of 90km/h or over
From September 26, drivers will no longer need to slow down to 40km/h on roads with speed limits above 90km/h. On roads with speed limits of 80km/h or under, drivers will continue to be required to slow down to 40km/h.
