BRISBANE — A suburban train guard has started private legal action to force the state branch of the Public Transport Union to hold its first annual general meeting in at least 20 years. Gary Dale has asked the court for an order requiring the branch to hold an AGM within three months. He objects to the long-standing practice of regarding once yearly meetings of the state executive as satisfying the requirement for an AGM.
