Free travel!

After threatening industrial action over a pay dispute, the Rail, Tram and Bus Union has confirmed that ticket barriers will be kept open and staff will refuse to check Myki cards on Monday August 12 and 19.

The move means that, for now, commuters won’t be significantly impacted by cancelled services and will in fact benefit from two days of free travel.

On top of this, drivers will refuse to skip stations or alter trains for a week from August 12 and there is an indefinite ban on wearing uniforms for all commuter-facing employees.
