Victorian Timber Workers were on the front lines during the bushfires
Timber workers like those in the video worked in terrifying conditions to cut containment lines. They used their skills, expertise and equipment to protect our lives and homes. They are still working now, assisting to clear roads, remove dangerous trees and helping regional towns to recover.
So why does the Victorian State Government want to shut down this vital industry?
The Victorian Labor Government has announced a rushed, flawed and ill-thought out plan to close down Victoria’s native timber industry.
The plan will mean a loss of badly needed jobs in regional Victoria. It does not provide enough assistance for workers to leave the industry with dignity.
It’s a plan that looks after inner-city Greens types at the expense of regional Victorians.
