The Votes Are In And Monday's Train Strike Is ON
Members of the Rail, Tram and Bus Union have voted to take industrial action this coming Monday.
They say the offer proposed by Sydney Trains management is not good enough to cancel an indefinite ban on overtime on Thursday and a 24-hour strike on Monday over pay and conditions.
STRIKE PROCEEDING: Rail Union has informed members that from 6,100 texts, only 360 odd ‘yes’ replies were received. Meaning industrial action will go ahead. Back to the negotiating table.

He has urged commuters to stay home and avoid travel during peak hours.
"It's disappointing we are at this point, I didn't want to press this button now," he said
