  • FIFO Cancer of the Community - Parliamentary Report

    21-Feb-2013

    The release last week of the FIFO report as a result of a Parliamentary enquiry labelled "FIFO as a cancer on the community."  Rather strong words which we think are meant to draw attention away from the benefits of FIFO. 

    Whilst we don't disagree that smaller communities need closer attention and a better way to capture statistics to ensure government investment in the increased services required to adequately cope with the transient influx, we do disagree with the premise of the report that people are being FORCED into FIFO arrangements….one of the core beliefs at Lacoa Workforce is that people have a right to choose where they work, and where they live.  And the truth is for many people – including in our head office town of Yeppoon – the FIFO and DIDO arrangements have enabled them to take advantage of the work available in mines and resources, at the same time as parking their families up in a town of their choice, which meets the services and facilities they want for their families..  Click here to be directed to a full copy of the report.

    What do you think?  We'd love to know.  Email us your opinion or contact us on Facebook.
