Petition - timber industry
26 July 2018
To the Legislative Assembly of Victoria:
This petition of residents of Victoria draws to the attention of the house and requests that the Legislative Assembly of Victoria ensure that the Andrews government acts to save hundreds of jobs and the livelihoods of thousands of families who rely on the continuing operation of their local sawmills.
We call on the Andrews government to immediately restore and honour the commitment made by VicForests that extensions will be available to A.G. Brown Sawmill, Dindi Sawmill, Fenning Timbers, Kelly's Timber, Powelltown Sawmill and Ryan & McNulty who signed timber supply agreements (TSAs) before 30 June 2017, thereby safeguarding jobs and livelihoods in the local communities of these businesses.
By Ms RYAN (Euroa) (52 signatures).
