Jamie is proud to be working on Victoria’s bus fleet as a mechanic – particularly with the shift towards electric busses.

With 40 years under his belt as a diesel mechanic and committed AMWU delegate and HSR, Jamie sees a bright future ahead.

Already, 65 diesel mechanics like Jamie have retrained at Kangan Institute for the new energy future.

And there’s more on the way – thanks to a partnership between Jamie’s union, employer Kinetic and the Victoria State Government.

This week, Jamie met with Minister Ed Husic MP, Senators and Members to tell his story – and we’ll back more success stories just like his.

Because we want to see our energy transformation deliver good, secure jobs in a future that’s made right here in Australia.
