Description of Conduct

On 21 June 2022, the Transport Workers' Union of Australia SA/NT Branch (TWU) applied for authorisation on behalf of its owner-driver members. Authorisation was sought for the owner-drivers contracted to Toll Transport Pty Ltd (Toll Priority) to bargain collectively with Toll Priority, with the assistance of the TWU, for the purpose of establishing new contractual arrangements for the supply of freight courier services.

On 13 September 2022 a collective bargaining class exemption notice form was lodged by a collective bargaining group of owner drivers that are contracted to provide courier “Pick Up and Deliver” transport services to IPEC Pty Ltd (trading as Toll IPEC).  

On 30 September 2022, the TWU withdrew its application for authorisation.
