The trucking industry now has an extra week to lodge submissions on the areas the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal (RSRT) should focus on in its second annual work program.

RSRT Deputy President Ingrid Asbury announced today the deadline would be extended from 4pm October 1 to 4pm October 8.

Likewise, the deadline for responses to submissions received has been extended from October 15 to October 22.

"A request has been received for a one week extension and the request is granted. A consequential extension to the date for further written submissions is also granted," Asbury says.

The tribunal’s first annual work program focused on five sectors: retail, livestock, bulk grain, interstate long distance and intrastate long distance.

The RSRT will later this month hold further hearings on its draft road safety remuneration order, which includes provisions mandating 14-day payment terms, written contracts and paid waiting time.

The newly elected Federal Government is planning to review the tribunal. The Coalition has questioned the need for the RSRT, which was established in response to findings linking low rates of pay to poor safety in the trucking industry.
