NSW leads the way on agricultural workers' code
The NSW Government will become the first jurisdiction to write the new Agricultural Workers Code into public health orders, paving the way for the $15.9 billion NSW primary industries sector to find skilled workers for the upcoming harvest.
The code means that farmers from Warialda to Wagga can get the best skilled workers to help them with this year’s harvest, regardless if they’re from Queensland, South Australia, Victoria or the Northern Territory.
This is good news for the Barwon electorate as it provides better support to our farmers leading to this year’s harvest season.
This Code is critical to supporting the agricultural industry and ensuring regional communities can capitalise on this year's bumper crops.
