ETU welcomes overdue investment in NSW trades
The Electrical Trades Union welcomes the NSW government’s commitment to hire 1000 new apprentices and trainees across departments and publicly owned enterprises over the next two years.
ETU NSW/ACT Secretary, Allen Hicks, said: “The union welcomes this long overdue shot in the arm for the state’s trades workforce.
“NSW desperately needs many more apprentices to ensure it has the right skills mix needed to meet future workforce demands.
“Having 1000 extra tradespeople across state-owned enterprises and departments will be good for jobs, families, productivity and the maintenance of essential services such as electricity and water.
“The ETU looks forward to discussing further details of this $93.5 million investment with the NSW government to ensure the creation of well-paid trades jobs over the next two years are in the areas most needed.”
