Enough is enough.
The government promised a continuous build of ships.
Instead we have seen the recent closure of Forgacs and in the coming months BAE may be facing the same fate.
The entire industry is under threat and unless the Federal Government commits to continuing to build our vessels in Australia, our shipbuilding industry will die.
Malcolm Turnbull and his Government have broken their promise to the Australian Workers! It's time we hold them to account and make them deliver.
We need to fight for the future of the industry and for skilled and well paid jobs for our kids in Australia.
Join us for a rally on Monday 22 February in Canberra outside of Parliament House so that our voices can be heard loud and clear. Let's show this government that Australian jobs and families matter.
