Call for Taskforce submissions to focus on Fair Work amendments
TFIA industry liaison Paula Rogers said this was an important way to let governments know about the issues and barriers being faced by businesses that would like to continue producing their collections domestically.
“There’s only one way to really make our case; we need a pile of people using one avenue to make the point very succinctly,” she said.
“These issues this will affect our industry across Australia.”
While the Creative Industries Taskforce may not be able to address the issue due to its charter, Rogers suggested the sheer weight of numbers objecting to the current arrangements might lead to the NSW Government raising the issue at COAG (Council of Australian Governments).
“COAG is where the states speak to the federal government on matters of state and national importance,” she said.
“The TCF regime affects the industry in the state; we want the NSW Government to use the COAG platform to address the issue with the federal government.”
Rogers pointed to the importance of conveying one voice on this issue and ensuring it had significant weight in each submission.
“If businesses have other matters they want to raise in their submissions, of course, they can use this platform to say them,” she said.
“But I’d like to see a thread of the challenges that honestly face the industry through the current legislative frameworks.”

Joining up with ECA and paying them money is not going to help either.
Have your say
