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.
Members have previously been advised of proceedings before the Industrial Relations Commission of NSW concerning a TWU claim for an increase to the rates of remuneration contained in the Transport Industry – General Carriers Contract Determination (“The Determination”).
Although the initial claim was opposed by parties including Road Freight NSW’s workplace relations partner, the Ai Group, a compromise was ultimately reached that provides for the phasing in of the rate increases over a period extending into next year.
