NatRoad to hold more meetings on owner-driver rates


Three more sessions will be held in two states to prepare industry for impending reforms.

 

NatRoad has penciled in more information sessions on soon-to-be-introduced minimum rates for owner-drivers, in a sign of the industry’s thirst for information about the reforms.

NatRoad  says events in New South Wales and Victoria will discuss the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal’s (RSRT) order that requires owner-drivers to be paid set hourly and kilometre rates from April 4.

NatRoad is concerned the rates the RSRT has mandated are too high and will discourage operators from using owner-drivers.

The first of three information sessions will be held on March 10 at the Gilbert and Roach Newcastle dealership on the Pacific Highway at Hexham.

NatRoad will then travel to Victoria for an information session at the Hallam Truck Centre on the Princes Highway on March 15.

The third information session will be held at Wagga Wagga on March 17 in New South Wales at Inland Truck Centres.

All events will start at 6pm. Those interested in attending need to contact NatRoad by email or by calling 02 6295 3000.

NatRoad held three information sessions this month on topical issues affecting the industry, including minimum rates.
