Cathy McGowan: trucking owner-drivers have my full support in Parliament
Posted April 18, 2016
Independent member for Indi, Cathy McGowan AO, is proud to stand up for regional Australia and throws her support behind owner-driver truckies wanting change in the industry. Small business, transport and logistics are vital in regional Australia, and the Transport Women Australia is one group calling for the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal to be shut down. The Road Safety Remuneration Repeal Bill and Road Safety Remuneration Amendment (Protecting Owner Drivers) Bill 2016 have been introduced to the House in the wake of the controversial Contractor Driver Minimum Payments RSRT Order introduced this month.
