Your Union Agreement goes to Geraldton
As part of our trip, we encouraged members to attend a jobs forum being held by Labor and to make the case there for the issues that matter to them in Geraldton. Overwhelmingly, the conversation was dominated by TAFE issues with locals understanding that education is critical to the employment prospects of Geraldton youth. Public Sector cuts and permanency are high on the agenda too with the Leader of the Opposition acknowledging that permanency is critical to regional economies.
We visited a number of agencies including Police, Agriculture, Child Protection and Family Services, Corrective Services, Housing and the Courts. We also caught up with our delegate and ‘no trade-offs’ champion Andrea Davis.
