ICA calls for owner-drivers' stories for its High Court application

Saturday, April 09, 2016

We at ICA have been greatly encouraged by the support that's been pouring in to help us with our High Court campaign to stop the evil owner-driver destruction laws. We’re working all weekend with our lawyers preparing the High Court application for lodgement this coming Monday (11 April).

But to bring home the impact of this terrible Tribunal, we need stories from Owner Drivers about how it has affected them. And we need them urgently. The High Court judges need to understand the impact of the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal on your business, your family and your life. They need to understand the crisis the RSRT has created for you. And that impact will be best conveyed by stories from Owner Drivers in their own words.

As our Executive Director put it in an urgent mass email today:
"We need your stories NOW.
Send me an email ken@independentcontractors.net.au with:
  • your name, address and phone and
  • explain your background in the transport sector and tell us
  • how the RSRT is hitting you. What’s the impact on your debt payments etc?
Keep it brief and clear. Up to one page will do. We’ll contact you for more details.

Contact your friends asking them to send us their stories.
We need heaps of stories by this Sunday night (10 April). We have to move double fast. But if you miss Sunday, keep sending stories to us."
ICA is very grateful for the money that has been coming in to pay for our legal bills. It’s building nicely but we need more. You know how expensive lawyers are! We are a volunteer organisation.
