Update on the Transport Industry – General Carriers Contract Determination 2017 – Rate Increaset

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.

Ai Group has prepared a Road Freight NSW member advice explaining the changes and setting out the new rates applicable under the instrument.

Road Freight NSW Members with questions regarding the new rates, or wanting to discuss the contract determination more broadly, should contact David Bray at the Ai Group on 9466 5531 or David.Bray@aigroup.com.au

David appeared in the proceedings before the Commission relating to the change.
