AMCA welcomes statement from Victorian Treasurer

Published: 6 April 2020

The AMCA welcomes the statement from the Victorian Treasurer reaffirming the state government's commitment to the building and construction industry.

In a letter to industry earlier this week, the Treasurer confirmed that "current restrictions do not include the building and construction sector"; but warned that "this can only continue as long as we work together to implement safe work practices at all our sites to reduce the risk of coronavirus".

Treasurer Pallas acknowledged the effort being made by employers and their representatives, as well as workers and unions to make workplaces safe in difficult circumstances.

"Despite these challenges, the Government remains committed to supporting building and construction projects in planning and delivery, in the safest way possible".

"To that end, and in the spirit of partnership, I have reiterated my commitment and expectation across government of the strong need for flexibility, trust and collaboration with you, our delivery partners in working through these challenges with the building and construction sector".
