Gig Worker Support Service

With the Parliament of Australia passing the Closing the Loopholes legislation which, in part provides for minimum protections for gig economy delivery workers, it is timely to reiterate VTA support for the Victorian Gig Worker Support Service (GWSS).

The GWSS was established in response to the Inquiry into the Victorian On-Demand Workforce and provides education and materials to help workers to make informed decisions about working for an online or app-based platform. The VTA was pleased to advise the Victorian Government on the transport industry’s views, which assisted Industrial Relations Minister Tim Pallas and his team develop and implement sound legislative and regulatory positions.

As an extension of our involvement on the establishment of this service, we’re reminding operators and industry the GWSS is keen to hear directly from freight industry stakeholders that have questions or concerns. Should you have any queries or wish to lodge an enquiry, please follow this link.
