Queensland Jobs Growth Summit

On April 26, AMWU State Secretary Rohan Webb will be speaking at The Queensland Jobs Growth Summit 2016. The summit will bring together Ministers and other key policy makers with leaders of the industries driving jobs growth in Queensland.

Rohan will be speaking about how it is vital that we do not simply create more jobs but that we create good jobs that support workers, their families and their communities.

The success of the manufacturing industry is pivotal to Queensland jobs growth, thriving local communities and a robust economy for our state. That’s why your union has made a submission to the Queensland Jobs Growth Summit focused on promoting good jobs with decent conditions and strong job growth in Queensland.

The recommendations put forward in our submission include:

  • Support for existing local industry transitioning into advanced forms of manufacturing. 
  • Fair wages and conditions to match highly-skilled work
  • The implementation of manufacturing hubs throughout Queensland to support rural and regional workers

We would love to know what you think about the Queensland Jobs Growth Summit 2016 submission. To read the AMWU’s submission click here.
