It's time to protect regional jobs
I am deeply concerned about job losses in regional New South Wales, particularly those job losses that may occur when Essential Energy start to slash good, secure well-paying jobs at Essential Energy. If Essential Energy is allowed to slash these regional jobs it will cause huge problems for local communities across regional NSW. You have the ability to step in and stop your own Government Organisation from devastating large and small regional communities by these job losses.
In your pre-election press release you declared "I will always lead the charge in protecting local electricity jobs."
I am asking you to not stand by and allow these massive job losses to occur, I am asking you to take whatever action you can and must do to protect regional communities and these jobs.
As a voter, I along with other concerned individuals will be watching very closely what you do to save these jobs at Essential Energy.
Why is this important?
We all know people living in Country New South Wales struggle at the best of times, with the Liberal/National Party cutting funding for Hospitals, Schools, and Roads along with carrying out forced amalgamations of local Councils.
THESE CUTS MEAN A LOSS OF REGIONAL JOBS.
To add to the struggles in regional NSW, the Nationals and Liberal Parties are standing by doing nothing to SAVE REGIONAL JOBS, where the Government Owned electricity provider Essential Energy will set out to slash its workforce by some 1600 regional jobs by mid-2019.
What can the National Party do: stand up to the Liberal party, and fight for regional NSW and save regional jobs and stop their own Government organisation from slashing regional jobs.
How it will be delivered
We will send John Barilaro, Leader of the NSW National Party your signed petition
