Labor backs illegal blockade while Nth Vic suffers
Friday 15 December 2017
Northern Victorian producers have been let down by Labor Member for Northern Victoria Mark Gepp.
An illegal union blockade at the Port of Melbourne is stopping our hardworking farmers in northern Victoria exporting their goods, but the Andrews Labor Government refuses to stand up for them.
Instead, Mark Gepp is posting smiling photos of himself and his union mates to social media, while this illegal picket is wrecking the livelihood of businesses and families in northern Victoria.
Daniel Andrews owes northern Victorian businesses like Kyabram’s Kyvalley Dairy an apology and an explanation on why his MPs are joining this union blockade – not fighting to end it.
Daniel Andrews will stand hand in hand with his union mates, but he won’t stand up for Victorian farmers and communities in northern Victoria.
