Daniel Andrews must act to ensure that Melbourne’s public transport system keeps moving in the face of planned industrial action.
In a concerning development, tram drivers are now joining train drivers in planning to go on strike and shut down Melbourne’s public transport system.
Daniel Andrews loves to talk about spending on infrastructure but this means nothing if Victorians can’t get where they need to go because trams and trains aren’t running. This escalation is further evidence that Daniel Andrews is missing in action on industrial relations.
The Liberal Nationals are calling on Daniel Andrews to come out of hiding and ensure these planned strikes do not occur.
If the Andrews Labor Government fails to act, it is Victorian commuters that will pay the price.
