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
