WA Greens claim Horizon Power has abandoned our regions

Greens Member for the Mining and Pastoral Region, Robin Chapple MLC, claims Horizon Power has abandoned our regional areas.

‘When the state government announced today they will make 61 positions redundant in their blue collar areas of the Pilbara, Midwest, Kimberley and Esperance they announced the decimation of our regional areas,’ Mr Chapple said.

‘This government approved cost reduction strategy will cost $7M in redundancies but it is based on a strategic review undertaken by a United States consultant company which cost the state government many millions of dollars.

‘I am astounded that this government thinks this is good practice.

‘By paying for and listening to very expensive advice from the United States, Horizon Power has abandoned our regions and is not a community player.

‘Horizon Power has dumped more workers onto an already overloaded scrap heap of workers by this state government.
