Supporting our Defence Forces
Our Policies

Labour recognises the incredible work done by our armed servicemen and women in maintaining our excellent humanitarian reputation abroad. 

Our plan for the next five years:

  • Continue to support the peacekeeping and refugee assistance role our defences forces play throughout the world
  • Support our defence forces to affiliate to ICTU and take an active role in national pay bargaining
  • Work with veterans to create a National Veterans Policy to clearly establish the State's obligations to those who have served in our armed forces
