On 27 June 2017, the Transport Workers Union of Australia SA/NT Branch (the TWU) applied for authorisation for its owner driver members who are contracted to Toll Transport Pty Ltd (Toll) to collectively bargain with Toll, with assistance from the TWU, to establish new contracts for the supply of freight courier and haulier services in the Whyalla region of South Australia.
The TWU seeks authorisation for five years. The TWU also sought urgent interim authorisation. On 3 August 2017, the ACCC granted interim authorisation to the TWU to commence the collective bargaining process between Toll and owner drivers contracted to Toll in the Whyalla region. No agreements will be finalised before the ACCC makes a decision on the substantive application.
On 27 September 2017, the ACCC released a draft determination proposing to grant authorisation for five years to allow owner drivers to collectively bargain with Toll, with assistance from the TWU, to establish new contracts for the supply of freight courier and haulier services to Toll in Whyalla, South Australia.
The ACCC now seeks submissions in relation to its draft determination by 13 October 2017 before making its final decision. Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject 'A91589 - Transport Workers Union (Whyalla) - submission'.
A final decision by the ACCC is expected in November 2017.
