Tassie Wharfies Discuss Region’s Future with Shorten

Published: 19 Sep 2014

In a short but energetic tour of the north west of Tasmania, Leader of the Opposition Bill Shorten spoke with union members from the North West, including those from the MUA, at an informal function arranged by Senator Anne Urquhart.


The wharfies in attendance were able to have a chat about the region, including some suggestions as to what could be done to improve circumstances as well as discuss how they saw the future direction of the ALP.

The event was attended by a number of union members and organisers from the North West Coast.

The general consensus was that the night was well worth it and all were glad to have the opportunity to have their say.
