Fate of Tasmania’s Antarctic gateway status hangs in the balance 22 June 2024

Tas Labor

Labor stands for well-paid, safe and secure jobs.

Jeremy Rockliff’s intervention on the TasPorts dispute, and trip to Sydney was the right decision. This situation has been developing for years as TasPorts arrogantly refused to negotiate in good faith.

But the Premier also owes an update to Tasmania’s critical Antarctic sector following his talks with the Australian Government yesterday.

He’s already broken his promise to deliver an Antarctic precinct and now TasPorts has effectively fired the starter’s gun for a Western Australian campaign to steal our entire Antarctic sector.

We cannot afford to lose this sector and the jobs that go with it.
