Support NSW Trucking Laws
We call on the NSW State Government to stand up for small business owner-drivers by supporting existing trucking laws that protect their jobs and provide sustainable rates across the transport industry.
Furthermore, we also call on the NSW State Government to ensure all payments to small business owner drivers and the transport operators that engage owner drivers are made within 30 days and that wealthy clients are finally held accountable for rates and conditions in the transport industry.
Why is this important?
Trucking laws in NSW, known as 'Chapter 6', have been in operation since 1984 to ensure owner drivers and contractors are supported by minimum conditions that provide for cost recovery and basic safety standards.
Not only must these conditions be preserved, but they should be extended to support 30-day payments so these small trucking businesses can maintain cash flow, and help hold powerful industry clients to account for rates and conditions in the transport industry.
