18/01/02 Union Cool Over Temperature Bans
Racing Victoria this afternoon announced there was no chance of disruptions to the weekend's scheduled race meetings in Victoria despite earlier threats by unions.

Discussions were held today between representatives of Racing Victoria and the Australian Workers Union.

The two parties will again meet for further discussions on the issue of Occupational Health and Safety on Tuesday.

There were fears Sunday's race meeting at Flemington could have been halted if the expected temperature of 36 degress eventuated.

Unions are concerned after years of negotiations concerning the lack of a "heat stress policy" for racetrack workers in Victoria.
