Vehicle Category Changes……What are you Looking at ?!!!!!!!!
Some contractors have been told that the pay rate has been worked out on number of children, example if you had a People Mover with only three children then you would be payed Car Rate not People Mover as the amount of children could be in a car.
When we were asked to tender we had to state what type of vehicle we were tendering with i.e. Car, People Mover, Mini Bus, Maxi Bus or Wheel Chair Vehicle and the department sent out in October 2011 “ TAB B Daily Run Rates” out lining the rate that the department would pay per km for each class of vehicle tendered. Nowhere in the contractual papers or the “ TAB B Daily Run Rates” paper work does it mention anywhere about payment by the number of children in the vehicle.
