Federal Member for Bendigo, Lisa Chesters and State Member for Bendigo West, Maree Edwards, today joined Martin Paten, Director of the Castlemaine State Festival, to call on Senator George Brandis to end uncertainty about future funding for the Castlemaine State Festival.

Yesterday, during Senate Estimates in Federal Parliament, Australia Post failed to rule out further job losses in regional Australia as a result of proposed changes to the way mail is delivered in Australia.

Federal Member for Bendigo, Lisa Chesters MP, is ready to rattle a tin for the Salvos this weekend as part of their annual Red Shield Appeal, now in its 50th year.

Independent economic modelling by NATSEM has revealed the true cost to families of this year’s Federal Budget, and once again it is families on the lowest income who will be hardest hit.

This week I have had the opportunity to meet with John Hazeldene and representatives from management at Hazeldene’s. I also met off-site with a delegation of Hazeldene’s employees and former employees.

In the meetings I expressed my concerns about employment practices at the site, particularly the pay and conditions of workers at the facility who are employed by contractors, some of whom are on temporary visas.
