What We Stand For

When people are happy and healthy with meaningful and secure work, our economy grows and everyone benefits. Government budgets must always be framed around how they affect people’s lives. 

Our Economic Direction Statement clearly sets out Labor’s priorities for Tasmania and its people.

Tasmanian Labor is committed to providing a positive and innovative alternative government for Tasmania. Tasmania deserves a Government that values everyone in the community equally and stands up for Tasmanians who are doing it tough. Labor is committed to putting forward policies for Tasmania that put people first and set a clear vision for Tasmania’s future.

Labor has a Better Plan for Tasmania

Labor is committed to creating Tasmanian jobs now and jobs for the future.

Labor will phase out all poker machines from Tasmanian suburbs and towns, over five years.

Labor will fix water and sewerage in Tasmania for good.

We’re focused on developing Tasmania’s renewable energy industry through our Target 500 initiative. 

We’re committed to a long term Passenger Transport Strategy to make passenger transport a smarter option for all Tasmanians.

We know prevention is the best medicine so that’s why it’s at the heart of our long term strategy to create a healthy Tasmania.

We have a long term strategy for regional tourism.

And we’ll make Tasmania the Education State.

These are just some of our policies designed to put people first.
