together  with the equipment  belonging thereto, on the  terms and conditions
hereinafter appearing.

(b)  Permanent Bailee - A permanent bailee  is a bailee who regularly takes a
     taxi cab on bailment, from the  one bailor, for five shifts per week, or
     a  bailee who  regularly takes  a taxi  cab on  bailment, from  the orle
     bailor, for  night shifts at a rate of night shifts per week which would
     achieve 220 night shifts per year.  For the purposes of this  definition
     absences  occasioned by illness, annual  leave, public holidays or other
     authorised leave shall  be counted  as shifts in  determining whether  a
     bailee is permanent.

(c)  First Year  Permanent  Bailee -  A  first  year permanent  bailee  is  a
     permanent bailee who is not a second year permanent bailee.

(d)  Second Year  Permanent Bailee  - A  second  year permanent  bailee is  a
     permanent  bailee who  has  completed 12  months  in the  industry as  a
     permanent bailee from one or more bailors.

(e)  Chargeable Fares - Chargeable  fares means all revenue earned  by reason
     of the bailee's use of  a cab in a shih including  (without limiting the
     generality thereof) fares  for multiple hirings,  non-passenger hirings,
     radio  hirings and contract  hirings and baggage fees  but excluding any
     gratuities.

(f)  Shift - Shift means the usage of a taxi cab by a bailee for a period  as
     agreed between the bailor and the bailee of at least 9 hours.

(g)  Day  Shift -  Day  Shift means  a shift  of  at least  9  hours but  not
     exceeding 12  hours at least 75  per cent of  which hours are  between 3
     a.m. and 3 p.m.

(h)  Night  Shift -  Night shift means  a shift of  at least 9  hours but not

     year permanent bailee  shall be 45 per cent. The  bailee's percentage in
     the case of a casual bailee and in  the case of a second year  permanent
     bailee  shall be 50  per cent. Notation: The  casual bailee's percentage
     includes compensation to him for not having sick, annual or other leave.

(j)  Excess Fee  - Excess Fee means the amount  calculated by multiplying the
     amount set out  in Item 1, Table 2  of Part B of this  determination (or
     such other  amount as may be applicable from time to time) in accordance
     with the escalation provision in the schedule to subclause (b) of clause
     3, Method of Payment, any  excess of the number of  kilometres travelled
     by the  cab in the shift over the number of kilometres specified for the
     subject  shift in the  Schedule to the said  subclause (b). Notation: No
     averaging of kilometres will be permitted.

3. Method of Payment

(a)  (i)  A bailee shall elect whether he/she will operate under method  1 or
          method 2 as  set out in subclause (b)  of this clause.   The bailee
          shall also  (without affecting the  validity of the  election) sign
          and leave with the bailor a record of that election.

     (ii) If a bailee fails to elect a pay-in method as required by paragraph
          (i) of this subclause, the bailee shall be deemed to operate  under
          method 2.

(b)  (i)  Method 1 - If the  bailee operates under method 1 the  bailee shall
          make a  pay-in to the bailor  of an amount equal  to the chargeable
          fares  less the amount of the bailee's percentage of the chargeable
          fares.  The bailee's  percentage is as set out in  (1) of Table 1 -
          Wages, of Part B, Monetary Rates.

     (ii) Method 2 - A bailee operating under method 2 shall make a pay-in to
          the  bailor of such amount as may  be agreed between the bailor and

          maximum pay-in amount for  the shift as set out in  (2) of the said
          Table 1.  Under this method the bailee shall be responsible for the
          fuel used by the taxi cab and for any wash at the end of the shift.

(c)  A bailee  who operates  under method  1 of the  determination as  it was
     prior  to the commencement of this  variation shall be deemed to operate
     under method 1 from the commencement of this variation.

(d)  A  bailee who  operates under method  2 of  the determination  as it was
     prior to  the date of  this variation shall  be deemed to  operate under
     method 2 from the commencement of the operation of this variation.

(e)  The bailee  shall forthwith, at the conclusion of each shift, pay to the
     operator the pay-in.

(f)  The bailee shall pay any  excess fee at the  time of the payment of  the
     pay-in.

(g)  The  monetary amounts  in Part  B, Monetary  Rates, may  be  varied upon
     application by the New  South Wales Taxi Industry Association  or by the
     Transport Workers' Union of Australia, New South Wales Branch.

4. Meter, Log and Daily Workcard

(a)  The bailee shall not  carry any person or any  goods in the cab  without
     setting and maintaining  the meter in  motion and  the bailee shall  not
     interfere with the operation of the meter in any way.

(b)  A bailee who  elects to operate  under method I  specified in clause  3,
     Method of Payment, of this determination  shall at all times if required
     by the  bailor so to do,  keep and maintain accurately,  in duplicate, a
     log recording sequentially  the pick-up and  drop points and  chargeable
     fares for each trip made in the taxi cab during the shift and shall give
     the  original of the  log to the  bailor forthwith at  the conclusion of
     each shift. The information so recorded shall be in addition  to that in
     the daily workcard to be completed by the bailee for  the purpose of the
     Transport (Public Vehicles) Regulations, 1930.

(c)  If, forthwith, after the conclusion of the shift the bailee requests the
     bailor and supplies the bailor  or his authorised agent with a duplicate
     of the  Daily Workcard completed in  respect of the shift  by the bailee
     for the purposes of  the Transport (Public Vehicles) Regulations,  1939,
     the bailor or his authorised agent shall as soon as practicable sign the
     duplicate and return it to the bailee.

5. Payment for Fuel

The bailor shall pay for all oil, maintenance, registration  and licence fees
in respect of the  operation of the taxi  cab.  The bailor shall pay  for the
fuel  in respect  of  any bailee  operating  under method  1  as set  out  in
paragraph (i) of  subclause (b)  of clause  3, Method  of Payment.   In  this
respect the bailor reserves the right to nominate the points for the purchase
of fuel, oil and other such commodities.  The bailee under the said  method 1
shall hand to the bailor forthwith, at the conclusion of each shift, receipts
for the purchase of such items and shall thereby vouch for their validity.

6. Second Year Bailees

If  a driver  seeking to  enter  into a  contract of  bailment with  a bailor
(hereinafter called the  new bailor)  claims to have  had experience  driving
taxi  cabs taken  by him  on bailment,  as a  permanent bailee,  from another
bailor or  other bailors, the driver  shall, if requested by  the new bailor,
authorise the other bailor or bailors to disclose full information concerning
him to  the new bailor;  and if such  information fails  to establish to  the
reasonable satisfaction of the new bailor that it is appropriate to recognise
the driver as a  second year bailee, the new  bailor shall not be  obliged to
recognise the  driver as  a second  year  bailee in  the event  that the  new
bailor, at his  discretion chooses to enter into a  contract of bailment with
such driver.

7. Inspection of Taxi Cab and Log

The bailee shall  permit the bailor, by  the bailor's officers,  employees or
agents  at all  times  during the  continuance  of the  bailment  contract to
inspect the  log, and  to inspect  and to  have access to  the taxi  cab, and
inspect and/or test the condition thereof, and the bailor shall  at all times
have the right  to require the bailee, personally, to return  the taxi cab to
his garage or depot for inspection or testing as aforesaid, or for the repair
or maintenance thereof, or  for any other reason  whatsoever that the  bailor
may deem fit.

8. Written Permission to Drive

The  bailee shall not permit or suffer any other person to drive the said cab
under any circumstances without the written  permission of the bailor or  his
agent first had and obtained.

9. Transportation of Passengers and Luggage

cab for the  transportation of  fare-paying passengers and  luggage only,  in
accordance with any acts, regulations or by-laws relating to taxi cabs.

10. Right to Terminate Bailment

The bailor or the bailee  shall have the right  at any time to terminate  the
bailment contract without notice or giving any reason in the case of a casual
bailee.  A bailor will not  terminate the bailment of a permanent  bailee who
has driven  for the same bailor  for more than three  calendar months without
giving one week's notice or one week's payment at the rate prescribed in Item
3 of Table 2 - Other Rates and Allowances, of Part B, Monetary Rates, in lieu
of notice,  except in the case of a  substantial breach by the bailee of this
determination or serious and  wilful misconduct, in which event  the bailment
can be terminated at will.

11. Observance of Acts, etc.

The bailee shall at all times during the bailment -

(a)  Comply  with   all  Acts,  regulations,  by-laws,   ordinances  and  all
     legislative provisions for the  time being in force  in regard to  motor
     vehicles, motor traffic and taxi cabs;

(b)  Exercise proper care for and control of the taxi cab; and

(c)  Comply with all  rules and  by-laws of any  co-operative in  association
     with which  the  taxi cab  is operated  or any  company  or other  group
     associated with the co-operative;

(d)  At  the  conclusion  of each  shih  or  the earlier  termination  of the
     bailment, the  bailee shall return the  taxi cab to the  garage or depot
     then being used by the bailor.

12. Prohibition of Alcohol and Drugs

The bailee shall not partake of any intoxicating liquors or drugs or be under
the influence of he same whilst in charge of the taxi cab.

13. Notification of Accidents

The bailee  shall forthwith notify the bailor of any accident or happening of
any  loss or  damage of or  relating to the  taxi cab and  its equipment, and
shall without delay  give full information to  the bailor as may  be then, or
thereafter,  available  as to  the  circumstances of  such accident,  loss or
damage,  and of  all claims  which may  be made  and/or threatened  and where
possible, the  names and addresses of witnesses. The bailee shall not, except
a his  own risk and expense,  negotiate, pay, settle, admit  or repudiate any
claim made by  any person arising out  such accident, loss or  damage and the
bailee shall do  all things reasonably necessary to assist  the bailor in the
prosecution, by the bailor, of any proceedings to enforce the bailor's rights
to recover compensation  for such  accident, loss or  damage. Any  reasonable
cost to the bailee involved in such actions shall be paid by the bailor.

14. Operation Outside Licensed Area

The  bailee may  not  take any  taxi cab  outside  the area  for which  it is
licensed to  operate unless permission is obtained from the bailor, his agent
(or  the Radio  Room supervisor)  and  if he  does, the  bailor  may, without
restricting the generality of clause 10, Right to Terminate Bailment, of this
Determination  cancel the contract of bailment forthwith and the bailee shall
be deemed to have used the vehicle illegally.

15. Department of Motor Transport Inspection

Where, by agreement with the bailor, the  bailee undertakes to clean, prepare
or drive and present  the taxi cab to the  Department of Motor Transport  for
quarterly  or other inspections required by that Department, the bailor shall
forthwith pay  to the driver,  as recompense  for all times  so spent  by the
bailee,  in  accordance with  clause  23,  Payment  for  Down Time,  of  this
determination.

16. Failure to Report for Duty

If a bailee  fails to attend to  take a taxi  cab on bailment  at a time  and
place previously rostered or agreed to,  and fails to report to the bailor at
least 2  hours prior to such time  his inability to attend,  the bailor shall
not, after  the expiration of 30 minutes from the agreed commencement time of
the rostered shift, be under any obligation  to keep a taxi cab available for
the bailee for that rostered shift. If the bailee fails, within a  further 24
hours, to notify the bailor of satisfactory reasons for his failure to attend
at  the rostered  time,  the  bailor  may  terminate  the  bailment  contract
forthwith  and without  notice,  but  without  in  any  way  restricting  the
generality of clause 10, Right to Terminate Bailment, of this determination.

17. Safety Regulations

The bailor shall comply with all government regulations in relation to safety
measures. No  bailee shall  be obliged to  accept a  taxi cab which  does not
comply  with  all  relevant  government  regulations  in  relation to  safety
measures.

18.  Provisions of  Uniforms

Where the bailor requires the bailee  to wear a distinctive dress or uniform,
it shall be provided  and laundered free of cost to  the bailee. At all times
the  bailee  shall  present him/herself  for  work  in dress  to  comply with
Department of Motor Transport regulations.

19. Annual Leave

(a)  Method I -

     (i)  A  permanent  bailee who  has  taken  taxi cabs  on  bailment  as a
          permanent bailee  from the one  bailor for  a period  of 12  months
          under method I during which time he has completed a  minimum of 230
          shifts or 220  night shifts shall  be entitled to  5 weeks'  annual
          leave,  exclusive  of any  public  holidays  occurring during  that
          period. Payment  in total for such  annual leave shall  be equal to
          5/47 of  the bailee's total  entitlement from the  chargeable fares
          during those twelve months.

     (ii) A  permanent  bailee who  has  taken  the cabs  on  bailment, as  a
          permanent bailee, from the one  bailor, for a period of at  least 3
          months but less  than 12  months, under  methods I,  shall, on  the
          termination  of  his contract  of  bailment  with  that bailor,  be
          entitled to  be paid an amount for holiday pay equal to 4/48 of the
          bailee's total  entitlement from  the chargeable fares  retained by
          him during the period for which leave is taken.

(b)  Method II -

     (i)  A  permanent  bailee who  has taken  taxi  cabs on  bailment,  as a
          permanent  bailee, from the  one bailor for  a period of  12 months
          under method II,   during which time he has driven a minimum of 230
          shifts or 220  night shifts, shall be  entitled to 5  weeks' annual
          leave,  exclusive  of any  public  holidays  occurring during  that
          period, at the rate set out in Item 2 of Table 2.

     (ii) A  permanent  bailee who  has  taken taxi  cabs on  bailment,  as a
          permanent bailee,  from the one bailor  for a period of  at least 3
          months  but less than  12 months,  under method  II, shall,  on the
          termination  of  his  contract  of  bailment  with the  bailor,  be
          entitled to  be paid an amount for holiday  pay at the rate set out
          in Item 3 of Table 2.

20. Sick Leave

Permanent bailees shall be entitled to five days' sick leave during the first
year of bailment, subject to credits  of such leave not being available until
the  completion of 55  shifts in a  three months period,  and that subsequent
credits  be  made available  on  a  pro rata  basis.  During  the second  and
subsequent years, a permanent  bailee shall be entitled  to eight days'  sick
leave.  The rights  and entitlements to  sick leave  under this  clause shall
accumulate.

All  payments for  sick leave  shall be  paid at  a daily  rate based  on the
average earnings per shift if the bailee  operates under method I and at  the
rate  set out in  Item 4 of Table  2 if the bailee  operates under method II.
Average  earnings  per shift  shall  be calculated  over the  preceding three
months period. Provided that a permanent bailee shall not be  entitled in any
12  months period as  a permanent  bailee in the  industry, with one  or more
bailors, to total sick leave in excess of that stipulated above.

21. Deductions and Bonds

A bailor shall be entitled to deduct from any moneys payable by the bailor to
the bailee under  this determination, any moneys payable by  the bailee to he
bailor under clause  3, Method  of Payment, of  this determination. A  bailee
may, at the bailor's discretion, be required to deposit a bond as set  out in
Item 5 of Table 2 prior to the commencement of any bailment.

22. Long Service Leave

Permanent bailees, who have served continuously with  one bailor for a period
of not less than five years, commencing on or after 1 February 1972, shall be
entitled to long service leave.

The  conditions of eligibility for leave, and the quantification thereof, and
all other conditions  pertaining thereto, shall be  by reference to  the Long
Service Leave  Act 1955,  as it  would have  applied, if  the bailee  was  an
employee of the bailor, during the period of service.

Service, for  the purpose  of this  clause, shall  mean a continuous  period,
during which  the permanent  bailee has taken  a taxi cab  on bailment,  as a
permanent bailee,  from the one bailor.  For the purposes of  this clause the
calculation of the rate  per week of  such leave shall  be equivalent to  the
rate per week provided in clause 19, Annual Leave, of this determination.

23. Payment for Down Time

(a)  In the event of a permanent  bailee being rostered for duty, and because
     of  reasons  beyond the  control  of the  bailor, and  alternate vehicle
     cannot be  acquired for him,  resulting in his being  unable to complete
     his shift, the bailee shall be entitled to the following arrangements:

     (i)  Where no vehicle is available to commence shift, and where at least
          two  hours'  notice  is  not  able  to  be  given  prior  to normal
          commencement time, an appropriate payment will be made.

     (ii) Where part of a shift is completed, the bailee shall be required to

       work card or work sheet, which shall be delivered to the bailor at the
