New Launceston employment coordinator could be busy

29/06/2018 Posted by admin

THE Federal Government this morning announced its new Local Employment Coordinator for Launceston and he could be inundated with requests for help by this afternoon.More than 270 workers at car parts manufacturer ACL Bearings will know by 5pm if they will lose their jobs.ACL directors have refused the conditions associated with a $4 million State Government loan and it is understood that the State Government is unwilling to budge.It would mean that the company would appoint administrators and it would become insolvent because it is unable to repay a $3 million debt it has with GE Finance.Bass Labor MHR Jodie Campbell this morning said that Geoff Spears had been appointed as the Northern Tasmanian Local Employment Coordinator _ a position created by the government for areas affected by the global recession.Mr Spears, who works with the Cradle Coast Authority, would play a vital role in identifying employment opportunities and providing support to workers who have lost their job, Ms Campbell said.“Local Employment Coordinators are tasked to help drive localised, practical responses to unemployment,” Ms Campbell said.“Mr Spears has been selected for his experience and strong links to our local community, which makes him very well-placed to be out there in the community, on the ground, actively working to support local jobs.“Local Employment Coordinators will also work towards developing apprenticeship opportunities and building the skills the local community needs for the future to take up opportunities once the economy recovers.”
