Intercity Fleet Petition

Last year the NSW Liberal Government announced that hundreds of new train carriages for the NSW intercity fleet will be built in South Korea after they awarded a $2.3 billion contract to UGL consortium.

My NSW Labor Colleagues and I are petitioning the Berejiklian and Barilaro Government on the impact this will have on local jobs in New South Wales. This decision will result in the off offshoring 1200 direct jobs and up to 2800 indirect jobs.  

In contrast the Victorian Labor Government has recently procured a new fleet of trains from a local manufacturer at a competitive price, demonstrating that local workers and local businesses are well equipped to design and built these new trains.

We are calling on the Government to cancel this contract, re-issue the tender for a fit-for-purpose train and ensure the new Intercity Fleet is built here in New South Wales by local workers.
