Labor shamed into backflip on Work Coordinators

Under pressure from the Liberal-Nationals Coalition, the Andrews Labor Government has been shamed into reinstating funding for Workplace Learning Coordinators.

Comments attributed to Steph Ryan:

“Young people will be relieved by Labor’s last minute backflip on funding for Victoria’s workplace learning coordinators.

“It is disappointing that Daniel Andrews had to be shamed into reinstating funding for these positions.

“Labor’s belated funding announcement is too little too late for some coordinators who were forced to quit their jobs to find more secure work.

“It is imperative that the government immediately engages the remaining coordinators to ensure the program is in place for next year.”
