Tasmanian Labor is standing up for Tasmania. You can find out more and get invovled at the Tasmanian Labor website.

  1. The Liberal Government’s lack of action to fix the state’s housing crisis is continuing to hurt vulnerable Tasmanians. Close to 20 Tasmanians living in short and medium-term accommodation at the Hobart Showgrounds will be evicted tomorrow and forced to move on to even less suitable housing options. David Farnell is one Showgrounds resident facing eviction […]

  2. There is no doubt we need more investment in primary care with the latest health dashboard data showing that too many Tasmanians are presenting to our emergency departments with non-urgent conditions. This puts pressure on our emergency departments and hardworking staff and demonstrates that Tasmanians are having difficulty accessing and affording community and primary care. We have […]

  3. As pressure mounts on Tasmanian families and businesses struggling with skyrocketing energy costs, damning RTI documents have revealed the Liberal Government’s failure to take meaningful action. In June last year, Michael Ferguson specifically requested advice on how to reduce high power price impacts on commercial and industrial customers and options were provided (though details are […]

  4. A Labor Government would take immediate action to repair uninhabitable social housing to get hundreds of people off the housing waiting list. Tasmanian Labor Leader Rebecca White says it is inexcusable that 215 homes around the state have been deemed “untenantable” in the latest Productivity Commission Report on Government Services, meaning they’re not fit for […]

  5. I want to thank the community for their swift support for such an iconic Launceston business. We led a strong community campaign to save the Boag’s visitor experience, and the reaction has been heart-warming to see. This experience not only supports jobs and creates tourism bed nights, but is a key marketing opportunity for Boag’s […]

  6. Today’s Health system dashboard update – released late on the afternoon before a public holiday – shows that Tasmanians are waiting longer for ambulances than ever before. The shocking median emergency response time in December 2022 was up to a staggering 15.9 minutes, a 1.3 minute jump since November 2022. Tasmanians are now waiting two […]

  7. Jeremy Rockliff’s failure to act on increasing cost of living pressures is continuing to hurt Tasmanians. Today’s ABS Consumer Price Index data shows that the annual CPI increase for Hobart is 7.7 per cent, while the increase on food and non-alcoholic beverages over that same period sits at 8.2 per cent. Tasmania is in the […]

  8. Jeremy Rockliff is continuing to try to hoodwink Tasmanians on his reckless $1 billion Hobart stadium despite his own analysis showing the proposal is a dud. In an article in The Advocate newspaper today, Mr Rockliff continues to claim the stadium is key to Tasmania’s economy when the reality is the full cost-benefit analysis proves […]

  9. Labor Member for Elwick, Shadow Sports Minister and former local football administrator, Josh Willie said it was soul-destroying to see his beloved Glenorchy Football Club in the situation they’re in and that footy in the state needs a massive shake up. Glenorchy’s situation is symptomatic of years of chronic under funding of the game in […]

  10. Today’s ABS retail trade figures are further evidence that cost-of-living pressures are biting Tasmanians hard. Retail turnover fell 3.7 per cent across the state as Tasmanians continue to tighten their belts under a Rockliff Liberal Government. Tasmania is in the midst of a health, housing and cost-of-living crisis, yet the Liberals continue to sit on […]
