United Labor team getting on with job

Tasmanian Labor
  • Labor united, Liberals divided
  • Labor focused on delivering a better, fairer Tasmania
  • Peter Gutwein has party disunity standing in the way of tackling the real issues
  • The Parliamentary Labor Party is focused on delivering Labor’s agenda for a better, fairer Tasmania and holding the new Premier accountable for his promises.

    Labor Leader Rebecca White said she was proud to lead a united, supportive team.

    “Unlike the Liberals, we are not distracted by the internal division and disunity that will continue to plague Peter Gutwein.

    “The new Premier has a big job ahead of him to forge a united team, before he can begin to tackle the list of issues he’s described as his priorities.

    “After six years as Treasurer and two years on from declaring a golden age, Peter Gutwein has suddenly acknowledged that Tasmanians are being left behind by the Liberal Government.

    “My team met today to reaffirm our priorities for 2020. Our focus is on jobs and training to ensure Tasmanians have the right skills for our current and future economy.

    “We are committed to delivering a better, fairer Tasmania and ensuring all Tasmanians have access to essential services such as health and housing, where and when they need it.”

    Ms White said Labor released several policies during 2019 and additional, fully costed policies would be released during the course of this year.

    “My team has been out and about right across the state, listening to business and community groups. What we hear from them will help inform the shape of the policies we take to the next state election.

    “I am committed to leading my team to deliver a majority Labor government in 2022.”
