Sydney Trains will cut about 94 services from Monday 19th March 2018 as part of what it describes as a tweak to the rail timetable after the network suffered a major meltdown two months ago.
The cuts to the services will mainly affect the Northern, North Shore, Bankstown, Cumberland and Carlingford lines.
The government need to be “upfront and tell people” what services would be cut and where rather than customers waiting to find out on Monday 19th March.
While train services are being reduced, train staff get a payrise.
The proposed deal includes a 3 per cent annual pay increase for three years, a one-off $1000 payment, 64 weeks paid redundancy and an extended travel pass on public transport.
