Thank you for your letter of 25 October 2018 regarding petition No 21-18 lodged by Ms Bec Cody MLA providing support for the Government Procurement (Secure Local Jobs) Amendment Bill 2018.
I am pleased to advise that this Bill was passed by the Legislative Assembly on 25 October 2018.
The Secure Local Jobs reforms help give effect to the government's commitment to use its market and procurement power to positively influence the behaviour of employers and to ensure that workers are safe, treated fairly and have their rights at work upheld.
