As part of owner-driver contracts, it is and has been standard practice for Cleanaway to adjust contracted rates for owner-drivers using data sourced from the Consumer Price Index (Transport) in each state. An increase in CPI can result in a backdated payment to owner-drivers and a decline can result in a reduction in payment. Adjustments vary from state to state depending on its CPI. The indices for the June quarter are usually released in August and adjustments notified to owner-drivers as soon as practical following that.
In 2020, with normal business volumes disrupted by the pandemic, Cleanaway supported its owner-drivers by ensuring continuity of the volumes to assist their operations.
Cleanaway has offered to discuss payments with any owner-drivers who feel they may have difficulty with the arrangements and may need extended terms.
