We are securing Australia’s shipbuilding future by

Campaigning to secure a pipeline of shipbuilding work that maintains consistent and growing employment across the supply chain and industry, and avoids the “valley of death”

Focusing on training and skills – supporting apprentices, cadets and graduate programs, and up-skilling existing workers. This leads to qualifications and opportunities in our industry for local workers

Delivering high wage, secure jobs with good conditions that are consistent across our industry

Demonstrating that Australia has the skills and ability to engineer and build high quality, world-class, advanced manufacturing products

    Yes, I want to be part of securing Australia’s shipbuilding future.
