I support Aussie Steel.
The Port Kembla Steelworks is a critical to the economic and cultural life in the Illawarra and the nation.
Here in the Illawarra we make things and we want to continue to make things. Government should provide strong support to the steel industry which enables us to compete fairly with international steel producers.
We demand a plan that is tough, that fulfils our international legal obligations, and is proven to work. We want:
- Mandated Australian standards.
- More Australian steel in government projects.
- Tougher Anti-dumping measures.
