The Liberals and Nationals can't stop sending jobs and contracts overseas.
We need to put local businesses and workers first.
Currently there is not a single mention of jobs in Berejiklian-Barilaro government procurement framework documents.
Michael Daley and Labor will mandate a target of 50 per cent local content for major state government contracts, as part of Labor’s plan to support NSW workers and local industry.
We will start by creating a new act that will require local jobs and content be written into all government procurement documents for the first time – ensuring that the local economy is at the heart of major projects.
It will also empower a minister to declare any government project valued at more than $50 million “Jobs Significant” – the trigger for the 50 per cent mandate to kick in.
