Rally: "Save our jobs, save Maryborough"

Thursday 28th of April 2016 08:29:05 AM



A community campaign has begun to save manufacturing jobs in Maryborough following union claims that Downer EDI rail factory was at risk of imminent closure.

A meeting led by the Australian Manufacturing Union outside the Downer EDI factory outlined the plan to rally the Maryborough community.

Corflutes calling on the state government to “save our jobs, save Maryborough” will sprout on the street corners and businesses in the near future.

A petition will also be started.

Maryborough MP Bruce Saunders told the gathered workers he would “continue the fight in the halls of parliament”.

“I won’t let you down,” he said.
