Welcome to the Special Job Security Edition of the CFMEU Manufacturing Newsletter.
WE'RE NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET
Despite 250,000 manufacturing jobs benefiting from the JobKeeper program, the Australian manufacturing industry still shed 75,000 jobs last year. Over 8% of the manufacturing workforce was lost.
JobKeeper finished on March 28th even though the manufacturing industry is still under pressure. All of this means it is time to dig deep and redouble our fight for job security.
But rest assured that fighting for your job is what your union is 100% focussed on.
