Peter Walsh MP:
Heyfield mill

The Andrews Government has disgracefully abandoned 260 workers at Australian Sustainable Hardwoods’ Heyfield mill by failing to guarantee a viable timber supply.

By Portal Admin - 17th March 2017 - Back to News

Labor’s half-baked offer to purchase the mill at the 11th hour again confirms Daniel Andrews has no problem playing political games with Victorian jobs.

Instead, Daniel Andrews has chosen green preferences over real jobs, sitting on his hands and costing the people of Heyfield their livelihoods.

This is a massive kick in the guts to Heyfield workers, their families and the local community.

The timber supply is there, what is lacking is will from Daniel Andrews to act.

Daniel Andrews has failed the people of Heyfield and his government’s policies are creating a massive jobs crisis for the people of Gippsland.
