Jockeys Vote For "Rolling Strikes" From Nov 16
Australian Jockeys Association general manager Des O’Keeffe announced riders at Flemington on Saturday voted “unanimously to take rolling strike action from November 16” as part of their campaign seeking funding from state governments for the National Jockeys’ Trust. O’Keefe said jockeys were disappointed by the response from state governments to last week’s demand by the AJA that state governments jointly provide a one-off $5 million boost for the National Jockeys’ Trust, which supports injured jockeys & their families.
