    The Transport Workers Union met with election candidates in Newcastle on Wednesday to sign the Pollie Pledge, to cement their support for transport industry workers and their families ahead of Saturday’s election.

    “As someone who has worked in the bus and travel industry for nearly 15 years, I know the pressures of working on the road, increasing traffic and congestion, and personal safety,” Ms Aitchison said.

    “I know that workers in our industry deserve fair pay, decent work conditions and a safe work environment.

    “If elected, I will continue to strive to deliver this for transport workers across the state.”
