Sadleirs and Skippers to host RSRT members


Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal members will visit transport operators as part of visit to Western Australia this month

By Brad Gardner | June 14, 2013

Western Australian firms Skippers Transport and Sadleirs Transport will next week host members of the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal (RSRT).

Commissioner Peter Hampton, Paul Ryan and Steve Hutchins will visit Skippers’ Welshpool site on June 17 from 12.30pm to 1.30pm to discuss remuneration, conditions and other matters affecting drivers and transport operators.

The three tribunal members will then head to Kewdale from 2.30pm to 3pm to catch up with Sadleirs, before heading to the Port of Fremantle the next day for a two-hour visit starting at 8am.

Hampton, Ryan and Hutchins are also scheduled to visit BP’s Kewdale facility on June 18 from 1.30pm to 2pm.

RSRT members, including President Jennifer Acton, began a series of visits starting in New South Wales in April. Members have stopped by the Tarcutta truck changeover, Port Botany, a roadhouse and Coles’ national distribution centre.

The consultations are aimed at informing the tribunal’s development of road safety remuneration orders, which can set minimum rates and remuneration related conditions businesses and the supply chain must meet.

The RSRT yesterday finished discussions with groups that lodged applications for orders. The tribunal dealt with applications from the Transport Workers Union, the Australian Road Transport Industrial Organisation, the National Union of Workers and Intercapital Trucking.
