The Steering Committee of the WSPTU met last week. One of the matters discussed was how to evaluate the competing rail policies which have been proposed by the different polical parties. These policies include the Western Express, the North West and South West Rail Links and the Epping to Parramatta Rail Link.
The Policy Forum of the WSPTU is meeting on Saturday Feb 5th so the committee is currently gathering information from the political parties about these proposals and asking for advice from some technical experts. Hopefully this will enable the WSPTU to advise it's member groups and make some public positions available before the State Election.
WSPTU currently has 3 policy positions published (click here).
