Deadline for submissions ends April 29 but written comments will be accepted up to June 13
The Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal (RSRT) has granted an extension of time for anyone seeking to make written submissions on a proposed road safety remuneration order (RSRO) for the oil, fuel and gas sectors of the road transport industry by April 29.
The date for written comments in reply to the submissions has been extended to June 13.
The draft Road Transport (Oil, Fuel and Gas Sector) Remuneration Order applies to “any road transport driver employed or engaged in the road transport and distribution industry in respect of any road transport service wholly or substantially in relation to the delivery, by means of a tanker, of any oil, fuel, gas petroleum products”, the tribunal says.
The RSRO application was made by the Transport Workers’ Union (TWU) in September 2014 further to an ongoing dispute lodged by the TWU with the tribunal in early 2014.
The dispute related to safety issues in the road transportation of oil, fuel and gas.
The matter was referred to RSRT member Paul Ryan, who held conferences with relevant parties to establish areas of common interest and narrow differences on the TWU’s proposed RSRO.
Last December, the tribunal published a report prepared by its members on the outcomes of these conferences.
The report includes a final proposed RSRO by the union.
