A report by the High Speed Rail Advisory Group | August 2013
High speed rail has been hotly debated in Australia for many decades. There have been numerous reports, proposals and investigations during this time, but none has progressed beyond the study stage.
This latest study prepared by a consortium led by AECOM and released earlier this year, is by far the most wide-ranging—including its work on long-term travel demand and route selection, highlighting future pressures on our existing infrastructure and population centres, as well as some of the opportunities afforded by high speed rail.
State Government reviewing Workers Comp
The State Government is currently reviewing the existing Workers’ Compensation legislation. The RTBU is asking members to sign an e-petition to keep the current arrangements and not remove or water down the rights of injured workers.
RTBU: a proud history
The RTBU was formed 1 March 1993 through the historic amalgamation of three railway unions and one tram and bus union. These unions have a strong tradition dating back to the nineteenth century. The oldest was the Locomotive Engine Drivers' Association which formed in 1861 in Victoria making the RTBU the oldest rail union in Australia.

Improvements in RTBU rthealth Fund
From 1 December 2012, all rthealth members who register themselves on the RTBU health plan will receive a 5% reduction in their contributions. This is a positive benefit which for some members will amount to a reduction of more than $200 a year in health fund contributions (over and above the 10, 20 or 30% subsidy provided by the Government).
