Mack and Volvo truck man interviewed on the Power Wireless this morning, they employ some hundreds of workers at Wacol (Brisbane) and turn out some 250 big units per annum for the local market. No government assistance. When the CEO came from the US he talked to workers and management and distributors etc but not the government.
They shed some workers during the crash but made some changes and came out in better shape than they went in, so they could move on to invest in more people and plant.
There is a union presence but they have no problems because there was cooperation to ride out the difficult period. Which union is that I wonder?
This is a record of Mr Abbott’s visit to the site in August.
[Too busy to check details or do further investigation.]
