we will bargain together

8 September 2021

Dear Members,

In around 3 hours, Drivers across Sydney and NSW Trains will commence blowing their whistles as they depart stations. The action will continue for 24 hours.

This is a loud action designed to announce the commencement of industrial action in what is to surely be an extended period of bargaining.

If you missed the text message and Facebook posts, the action is as follows:

Action: Blow the train whistle at every station before departing

Time: 12.01am on Thursday, 9 September 2021 until 12.01am on Friday, 10 September 2021

Ensure that you blow the whistle as you’re departing every station to show Sydney Trains and NSW Trains that we’re united in our effort to achieve a fair agreement with improved conditions.

If you have any questions on what is intended by this action, please contact your organiser.

In unity,


Issued & authorised by Alex Claassens, Secretary, Rail, Tram and Bus Union – NSW Branch
