Changes to the Fair Work Act may benefit the energy and resources sector

The energy and resources sector is a significant contributor to the economy, and its impact is estimated to continue to grow over the next decade. The Australian Resources and Energy Group (AMMA) estimates that the sector will add over 24,000 new workers by 2026 to support 98 new and expansion projects worth over $83 billion. The roles available could double depending not the construction and flow-on work required.  Western Australia and Queensland are expected to benefit the most from these initiatives.
