Victory ! Essential Energy Jobs In Port Macquarie Saved
Leslie Williams, Member for Port Macquarie, has welcomed the announcement by Minister for Energy Matt Kean that he will be issuing a directive to Essential Energy to halt the proposed job cuts.

Essential Energy was planning to cut more than 180 jobs across NSW which has led to widespread fear and anxiety for local employees.

“I have had a steady stream of both current and former Essential Energy employees contacting my office who have been very anxious with many in tears over the planned restructuring and I am extremely pleased with Minister Kean’s announcement today,” Mrs Williams said.   

“I strongly urge the Essential Energy CEO and Board to investigate alternative efficiency measures rather than drastically reduce the workforce numbers.

"I understand that they need to identify savings in order to put downward pressure on electricity prices but slashing local jobs in communities like Port Macquarie is not an option particularly when the worst drought on record is having such an impact. 

“During the past six weeks I have met with many stakeholders to put forward a strong case on behalf of Essential Energy employees in Port Macquarie and I am pleased today that their voices have been heard loud and clear.  

“I thank the Premier, Deputy Premier, Treasurer and Minister for Energy Matt Kean who have all played a part in protecting Essential Energy jobs particularly in Port Macquarie,” Mrs Williams said.
