OPINION ON FIFO with GAGAL CEO Leigh Zimmerlie
Back to our main story, click here.
OPINION: "GLADSTONE Area Group Apprentices Limited is all about getting local youth into apprenticeships and traineeships. We have three offices in Gladstone, Rockhampton and Biloela.
FIFO workers choose this type of employment and are aware of the conditions they must work to. It is, after all, their choice.
Have FIFO apprentices been employed in Gladstone? Yes, they have. Did that affect the number of locals gaining roles? Obviously it has.
We have been fortunate and have had support from local employers who continue hosting local apprentices and we have 39 apprentices hosted by Bechtel."
