Respect Defence Workers: Cuts Could Kill 

Our uniformed Defence Forces rely on a 'silent army' of civilian workers to support them. 

An 'army' of engineering and technical workers spend every day at work making sure that the equipment used by our armed forces is working, is safe and is ready to go. 

But a lack of planning and investment means that jobs are being shed, and skills are not being replaced. 

Already, we are starting to face a shortage of these vital workers - and those that are left are being stretched thin.

To safeguard national security, Australia needs a civilian workforce capable of designing and maintaining a variety of military equipment.

These skills, knowledge and experience needs to be preserved into the future. 

Join us in calling on the Government to invest in Defence skills and Respect Defence Workers.
