A broad group of transport industry members have agreed on reforms to industry standards that prioritise safety and efficiency. A transport industry roundtable including major companies, associations, unions and federal ministers has backed a shared set of principles calling for reforms that set enforceable standards across the industry. The roundtable included workplace relations minister Tony Burke, Woolworths, Coles, Uber, DoorDash, major transport operators, industry associations and the Transport Workers’ Union (TWU). Ahead of the jobs and skills summit, the roundtable called for urgent action to ensure a safe, sustainable, viable, and fair road transport industry for all supply chain participants, including independent contractors, and non-employee transport workers in the on-demand and rideshare economy.
