Unions welcome ACT Budget

Unions in Canberra have welcomed today’s ACT budget, which protects local jobs, invests in health care and better hospitals, and takes positive steps towards preventing family violence.

The following quotes are attributable to Alex White, Secretary of UnionsACT:

“Unions welcome the ACT Budget’s boost to private sector jobs growth through increased infrastructure investments. The Budget also secures local public service jobs.

“Similarly, there is significant investment in public health and hospitals, with 170 new health staff including 91 new nurses.

“Unions also welcome the massive investment in domestic and family violence prevention services.”
