Hanson Drivers Hold Strong in New Pay Deal

« Back to News Articles

It pays to be united

Wages growth in the private sector is running at record lows but we have been able to achieve above inflation increases for Hanson tippers and tankers drivers.

An almost 100% union membership and a strong resolve among the drivers based at the firm’s Red Hill, Byford and Kwinana operations helped ensure we didn’t go backwards.

Our resolute members will receive three 2.5% pay rises over the course of the new agreement.

Allowances will also rise in line with these increases.

The troops rejected a company proposal to change their early start arrangements, having worked out this could cost them money.

Unfortunately, the firm’s concrete agitator drivers accepted similar changes when they voted up their agreement late last year.

They also copped smaller wage rises.

However, I am hopeful that by building our membership amongst the concrete drivers we will be able to drive a better bargain next time round.

Together we are stronger!
