The Rail Tram and Bus Union is accusing Pacific National of casualising it's Hunter workforce by stealth.
The rail company has confirmed dozens of full time coal train drivers are being made redundant, with 40 jobs to go in the Hunter at the company's Port Waratah and Greta depots, with more than 120 job cuts statewide.
The union has slammed the move saying the company is advertising for casual staff while cutting full time workers.
The company says the job cuts are necessary to cope with the peaks and troughs in demand for staff.
