TRMC represents industry to support vaccine roll-out

TRMC has garnered support from its largest employing members to undertake an industry initiative for federal government to help deliver the vaccination roll-out across the industry.

TRMC membership includes the largest print and supply groups across Australia and New Zealand which provides a solid footing for an industry voice into discussions in Canberra. Reaching out to their top twenty employment member companies, TRMC accrued support across the top five within hours.

“As an industry we are one of the largest manufacturing employers across the country and when the Federal government called for industry support, we reached out to our largest employing members. I was overwhelmed by the immediate support, we had companies responding within hours and I want to thank those who have acted so quickly. This allows us to have our communications into government for the broader Australian industry discussions today,” said Kellie Northwood, CEO, The Real Media Collective on 8 July.

At this stage the vaccination roll-out will be explored in Canberra with guidelines to be implemented. Led by Lt. Gen John Frewen and Treasurer Josh Frydenberg, plans wil be reviewed to use workplaces to improve the rollout - most likely using a similar model to how flu vaccinations are provided to employees, as the government looks to the end-of-year “sprint” in the latest reset to Australia’s vaccination campaign.

TRMC has been keen to highlight that no employees will be mandated to be vaccinated, rather a choice will be available for on-site vaccination similar to many programs already offered by industry across the annual flu- jab programme operating across States and Territories.

“Whilst still finalising our numbers, the companies already supportive and those keen to finalise support, pending overseas head office approval, see within a week of discussions over 10,000 employees being supported by proposed initiatives. Employees will always have choice across such programs, however this provides industry commitment to support employees with their choice,” concluded Kellie.
