If you know the difference between “stop” and “go”, you can earn more money as a traffic controller than do many of the people in the traffic you’re controlling. …
CFMEU NSW state secretary Brian Parker said there are some traffic controllers on $180,000 per year.
He said under a new EBA agreement many workers like Ms Dowsett will get a 3.5 per cent pay increase in March next year.
Asked how the CFMEU justifies such massive pay packets, he said: “They stand outside all day in all sorts of weather and they cop abuse from the public.”
This is what you get when unions control the politicians.
