COVID-19 Industrial Working Group

The industrial arm of the Bus Industry Confederation is APTIA - the Australian Public Transport Industrial Association (APTIA).

APTIA has an Industrial Working Group of 38 representatives across the Australian bus and coach industry from small to large organisations delivering moving people services in a variety of tasks including public transport, school services, long distance and touring, charter and express services. The goal of the group is to facilitate an industrial relations environment by reaching an agreed national approach to issues in which our industry operates. 

The group comes together frequently throughout the year to ensure the ongoing IR agenda is responsive and meets the remit of the APTIA and BIC councils, including:



IWG Activities

An important current role for the group is to bring their combined experience to the table in identifying current and emerging issues, discuss various approaches in the management of Covid-19 in the workplace and to make recommendations to APTIA and the BIC to assist Members and the broader bus and coach industry.
