The Motor Trades Association of Australia (MTAA) with CEO Richard Dudley hosted the Prime Minister Scott Morrison at a meeting of leading company Executives in Melbourne to discuss a wide range of issues impacting the industry and broader economy.
MTAA thanked the Prime Minister and his Government, particularly Ministers Cash, Andrews, Robert, Frydenberg and Sukkar for successfully addressing multiple automotive policy and regulatory concerns including automotive franchising, mandated law for provision of motor vehicle service and repair information, introduction of a class exemption for collective bargaining, and improved unfair contract terms for more small businesses. MTAA CEO Richard Dudley also recognised the position of Australia’s automotive industries would not be in the position they are in without the quick Australian focussed intervention and actions to address the pandemic and its impacts. The Prime Minister thanked the MTAA and Member Associations for constructive engagement and working with government to deliver the significant changes.
