Queensland is Australia's strike capital under Labor

Published:

Queensland is leading the nation with the most industrial action under the Palaszczuk Labor Government, according to new data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics today.

Queensland lost over 2,000 working days due to industrial action in the December 2019 quarter alone.

LNP Deputy Leader and Shadow Treasurer Tim Mander said since Annastacia Palaszczuk became Premier, Queensland has suffered more strike action than any other state – accounting for 31.6 per cent of all working days lost nationally.

"With 166,300 working days lost since 2015, Queensland has 20% more strikes than the second highest state of Victoria," Mr Mander said.

"More strikes and $3.5 billion in new Labor taxes have driven Queensland businesses conditions to their lowest on record.

"Only the LNP will build a strong economy with a job-creating infrastructure plan to get Queensland working again.

"A future LNP Government will create jobs by building the New Bradfield Scheme, new roads and dams, delivering cheaper electricity, cutting red-tape and guaranteeing no new taxes.

"It's time get Queensland working again and only an LNP Government will deliver."
