TWU members together with industry groups are organising national convoys to push for transport reform in the face of soaring truck crash deaths.
The convoys will take place on Black Friday weekend, one of the busiest for transport workers, to gather support for fair, safe, and sustainable transport standards via the Closing the Loopholes bill.
The TWU say 20 people die in truck crashes, three transport workers are killed, and 55 transport businesses collapse on average each month.
‘With all major gig companies on board, the entire transport industry has backed this reform. We need Federal Parliament to do the same so we can save lives on our roads.’
Transport associations and companies support the initiative, highlighting the urgent need for reform and the unity behind it.
