I will move that this House:

(1) Notes that on 10 August, the Government shut down the entire Illawarra train line, again inconveniencing thousands of passengers in response to limited industrial action taken by rail workers.

(2) Notes this industrial dispute has been going on for more than a year and that instead of trying to resolve it, the Government has inflamed it at every opportunity.

(3) Calls on the Government to urgently meet with rail workers, sign a commitment to fix the New Intercity Fleet and negotiate an agreement in good faith to end this mess so passengers can have a trains service that they can rely on.
