Gippsland lines to be hit by rail worker strikes
Strikes by V/line staff this month will impact on train services on the Bairnsdale and Traralgon lines.
V/Line drivers, station staff and train controllers have voted to take industrial action as they seek a 6 percent annual pay rise over three years.
Overtime bans and rolling stop work action across all regional lines will take place from next Wednesday until December 20.
The union has scheduled Bairnsdale and Traralgon line services to be disrupted by a stoppage on Tuesday 17 December.
