Save Our Jobs, Save Maryborough

Save Our Jobs, Save Maryborough

Maryborough needs jobs. Our local community depends on secure jobs to stay a vibrant and economically sustainable place to live. But
our community is under threat.

Locals working at Maryborough’s Downer EDI facility are at risk of losing their jobs due to a lack of work. We are calling on the Queensland Government to carry out government work locally, so that local work can support local jobs. Join the campaign to save our jobs and save Maryborough.

We the undersigned call on the Queensland Government to take immediate action to support workers and their continued employment at Downer EDI in Maryborough.

We note the important role that the manufacturing industry plays in maintaining Maryborough as a vibrant and economically sustainable community. We ask that the Queensland Government prioritise local work for local workers in Maryborough.
