Commuter pain as slew of peak-hour trains disrupted amid union dispute

Trains have been cancelled or delayed on multiple lines across Melbourne because of “driver resourcing” after almost 50 drivers were suspended over a safety dispute.

Commuters on the Belgrave, Cranbourne, Hurstbridge, Pakenham, Frankston, Sunbury and Werribee lines were hit with peak-hour delays on Thursday morning, prompting frustrated travellers to vent on social media.

The disruptions come despite the Fair Work Commission on Wednesday night issuing an interim order declaring that industrial action must stop as a dispute between Metro and its drivers drags on.
