Double Celebration as IU turns 18!
I have had the pleasure of sharing with you many times over the years about the exciting developments at Industry Update.
 
There has been many highs, some lows and great records broken!
 
Thanks to your support, Industry Update has become a trusted and reliable source of news and product information about the manufacturing industry.
 
Industry Update has changed significantly since its inception in June 1995.
 
This magazine started as an 8-page advertorial product guide and now 18 years on, we are the leading manufacturing publication in Australia.
 
This 18th birthday edition is especially sweet as this is also the biggest edition that we have ever published!
 
The Industry Update team is dedicated to producing a first class magazine that has taken the lead by maintaining a strong and informative editorial identity that has made this publication a voice for the manufacturing industry.
 
Whilst our approach has been to inform, educate and help build manufactures' businesses, we have also taken a strong stand on government policy and how those policies effect manufactures.
 
Industry Update has been a loud voice on issues such as safety in the workplace and the protection of employers and employees. We continue to address the Fair Work Australia imbalance.
 
We hope the next Government – whether the Coalition or Labor – moves quickly to address some of the outrageous and draconian elements of Fair Work.
 
We have seen many innocent employers entangled and crushed in the nasty web of destruction in the name of ‘Fair Work.’
 
When employees are allowed to tell their boss to 'F' off without consequence and others are allowed to disregard safety policy in spite of the law and employers are forced to keep those people employed, then what is the point of the law!
 
A dangerous precedent has been set once an employee is allowed to show flagrant disregard of the law but remain in their position.
 
All this and more has occurred under the Gillard government’s administration.
 
If all employees showed willful disregard for the law we would have anarchy. Society would not work and the country would be bankrupt!
