MS TIERNEY– To ask the Minister for Employment and Trade: In relation to the recent four job losses at the Air Radiators manufacturing plant in Lara: what assistance will the Baillieu government provide Air Radiator workers in Lara who have recently been made redundant.
I am informed that:
The Department of State Development, Business and Innovation contacted the business to determine its current status including the redundancy conditions and the level of employer support for affected staff.
The Department has offered access to the Government’s Workers in Transition Program to assist with retraining opportunities where relevant.
The Department has also offered to assist with referrals to the appropriate government agencies and service providers such as Job Services Australia, Centrelink and local training organisations to assist with information and support programs.
