Labor has been campaigning for new laws that will deliver a greater share of the engineering and fabrication work for our major resources projects to local businesses.
Labor recently introduced the Skilled Local Jobs Bill 2011 into State Parliament and the Bill is expected to come up for debate next week. The Bill would be a major step forward and is supported by the Australian Steel Institute, the Association of Professio...nal Engineers, Scientists & Managers of Australia, the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union and UnionsWA.
We need your help to convince the Independent, National and Liberal Members of State Parliament to support the Bill.
Please help us by visiting the WA Jobs website and using the simple tool to send an email to your local member, asking them to support the Bill. All you need to do is enter your postcode, edit our draft email and send. Our systems will deliver it to your local Member immediately.
