MTAA supports retention, broadening and change to Automotive Transformation Scheme
The Motor Trades Association of Australia Limited (MTAA) today welcome the interim report of the Senate Economic References Committee Inquiry in the whole Automotive Industry, but says more work is required and urged government to listen to the calls for change.
MTAA President, Neville Gibb said the MTAA welcomed the recommendations that the Automotive Transformation Scheme (ATS) should not only be retained, but to include changes to accessibility and scope to ensure those who will continue to deliver products, components and new technologies and initiatives are encouraged.
In addition, the MTAA today called for $120million dollars to be set aside from future ATS allocations to be directed to an enormous body of work to re-position reskill and significantly change the qualifications and structure of training delivery and skills enhancement for automotive professions.
