In this strategy document, the ACTU calls for a government-led national economic reconstruction plan, and offers up five ideas that are designed to create and save jobs, protect and nurture whole industries, support public and private sector jobs, invest in future skills and training, and strengthen Australia’s physical and social infrastructure.

These ideas include a national commitment to free early child education and care, massive investment in training (including 150,000 free TAFE places), a ‘Rediscover Australia’ initiative to help our travel and hospitality sectors survive, a large and sustained increase in infrastructure investment and a comprehensive plan to expand sustainable manufacturing.

Proposed programs:

  1. Early childhood education and care strategy
  2. Training for reconstruction
  3. Rediscover Australia
  4. National reconstruction investment plan
  5. Sustainable manufacturing strategy
