Consultation Commencement Timeline

In December we released a proposed consultation timeline and asked for your feedback.

We received 178 responses which have informed us of a number of things we needed to consider including clashes with School Holidays, Forward Estimates, Budgeting 21/22 and Year End Deadlines all starting from March 2021.

Based on this feedback we have adjusted and finalised our consultation timeline.

What is consultation?

The detailed design aspect of org design, drawing lines and boxes, is the responsibility of our working groups, who are made up of representative from TfNSW, Sydney Trains, TrainLink and Voice of the customer. The output of this is a detailed branch structure down to individual roles that will be presented for feedback during the formal consultation period.

Consultation remains an important part of the process where staff can provide feedback on everything that is proposed, including structures, role descriptions and how those roles are proposed to be filled.

Consultation feedback is reviewed by your branch leader, as well as People and Culture. In some cases, feedback may also be reviewed by the Deputy Secretary, the wider branch leadership team and other relevant stakeholders – for example another branch leader if teams are proposed to move to another branch. Your feedback will remain anonymous throughout the process and is de-identified when required.

Determination / Decision on change is when the decision on the final structure is made, including any changes in response to feedback from consultation. No changes take effect at this stage but determination will provide certainty about the structure we will be proceeding with and any associated impacts.
