|QR - about to be consigned to history?|
- Why was a new EBA (which included internal recruitment) signed off by the QR Board just before the Strachan report into Rail Fail?
- What else in the EBA will affect Rail Fail recovery? (Hint: drivers break times).
- Despite the Strachan inquiry recommending external recruitment, why have no drivers without previous QR experience been trained?
- Does the RTBU and QR care about the external driver applicants stuck in job limbo? (Some are now in serious financial difficulties)
- Does the RTBU care about long suffering commuters, and the damage to QLD economy and reputation due to Rail Fail?
- When will there be a consistent Monday to Friday timetable?
- When will commuters cease to be inflicted by reduced service holiday timetables, and hourly weekend train services?
- When will the full October 2016 timetable be restored?
- When will urgently required services improvements (such as improved pm peak services and 15 min off-peak on sector 1 lines) occur?
There is growing public resentment towards the ALP Palaszczuk government, QR, and RTBU, due to #RailFail dragging on for years. It is increasingly likely that QR will be rapidly privatised by the LNP when they next gain power. Of course, this was the LNP's original plan, as the seeds of Rail Fail were sown by driver recruitment freezes under the Newman government. It seems that if the RTBU continue to show contempt towards the travelling public, they will be shooting themselves in the foot, as their ALP bedfellows will loose power, and QR will be consigned to history.
