Hopes of averting a rail strike in Sydney may rest with the Fair Work Commission, after members of the Rail, Tram & Bus Union voted against the New South Wales Government’s proposed wage deal for train drivers. FWC deputy president Jonathan Hamberger will shortly decide whether the planned strike action on 29 January can lawfully proceed. Train drivers will commence a ban on working overtime on 25 January, ahead of the proposed 24-hour shutdown of the rail network.
