Melbourne’s train network set to be derailed by more strike action

Melbourne’s long-suffering commuters are about to be hit again.

The Rail, Tram and Bus Union is set to bring the train network to a halt with rolling train strikes lasting up to 48 hours.

The RTBU is pushing for maintenance workers to get the same 17 per cent pay deal that its drivers won last year.

That deal was a cash bonanza for some drivers, giving them the potential to earn more than $140,000 a year.

So far, Metro is offering its infrastructure workforce an extra two per cent over four years.

The threatened rolling strikes will come in a series of one-hour walk-outs to up to two days.
