Why strike?

Rail, Tram and Bus Union (RTBU) members who work at Metro and Yarra Tram are dissatisfied with their salary and work standards.


The union hopes to increase workers' wages by 18% in the next three years, or 6% per year. But it was rejected by Metro and Yarra Tram.


The two sides have been negotiating for five months on this matter, but the five-month negotiations were not successful, which aroused strong dissatisfaction among union members, and 5% of them were willing to strike.

RTBU said that the strike action is also helpless, hoping to minimize the impact on passengers, as compensation will give citizens the right to ride for free for two days.

It is estimated that such a capricious strike is unique to Mocun. . .
