Independent Contractors Australia has urged the Federal Government to abolish the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal when Parliament is recalled. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Employment Minister Michaelia Cash have committed to scrapping the RSRT if the Coalition wins the 2016 federal election, and Cash stresses that it lacks sufficient support in the Senate for legislation to abolish the agency. There are concerns that the RSRT’s pay ruling will force many owner-drivers out of the trucking industry.
