Thousands of passengers have been caught short by tram strikes this week, including the network-wide stoppage between 10.00am and 2.00pm today.
Daniel Andrews should have acted to stop these tram strikes, but instead he has sat on his hands.
Victorians expect leadership from Daniel Andrews, but instead they’re bearing witness to the effects of his dithering, do-nothing approach to union strikes.
In a sign of what’s to come, the Rail, Tram and Bus Union has already warned of further industrial action.
There is no end in sight to the dispute with tram drivers, and there is a real risk of other strike action affecting train services, health services and police in the weeks ahead.
Mr Andrews must stop being a passenger, and bring an end to the growing list of industrial disputes threatening Victoria’s public services.
