RSRT delivers ‘truckload’ of legislation

The Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal (RSRT) has been hard at work over the holiday season and is about to release a truckload of legislation to make the industry safer.

Unaffected by the Abbott Government's plan to conduct an “urgent review” of the Tribunal, the RSRT has released comparative schedules of selected road transport driver rates, costing models and conditions.

The Tribunal has also provided contractor-driver rates and costing models published in Victoria and Western Australia and rates in a contract determination applying to some contractor-drivers in New South Wales.

The schedules cover the costs, assumptions and sources (where available) that relate to the guideline rates for contractor-drivers.

The Tribunal has also released comparative schedules documenting remuneration and selected conditions in 17 enterprise agreements relevant to road transport drivers, as well as comparative schedules documenting remuneration and selected conditions in modern awards, state awards, contract determinations and state guideline rates relevant to road transport drivers.
