Up in the air after Qantas cuts

Grounded: Ryland Robinson is out of work and faces a bleak future.

CMI Industries workers in Campbellfield were in shock after the company announced 64 jobs would be slashed by October. The business, which went into administration in April, will close after receivers failed to find a buyer. The news comes a week after Ford announced 220 job would go from its Broadmeadows plant by November. And that was in addition to 240 Ford job cuts last year. CMI makes seatbelt restraints, airbags, brake pad backing plates, suspension components, and door and boot hinge parts used in Ford cars. Australian Manufacturing Workers Union secretary Leigh Diehm said CMI workers were ‘‘working through the process; they’re still in a state of shock’’.

He said all the sacked workers lived in the Hume area and it would be hard for them to find work given the number of redundancies made in the area of late. ‘‘It’s going to be hard given this is happening no more than a week after Ford Broadmeadows made its redundancies. ‘‘It’s a really hard time for people in Hume. There will be a cluster of people looking for jobs. Geographically, it’s not good for that whole area.’’ Calwell MP Maria Vamvakinou said she was saddened by the job losses. ‘‘The country is working through changes that come with a two-speed economy, which means some industries are thriving while others are facing serious challenges.’’

BY STEPHANIE ZEVENBERGEN RYLAND Robinson ‘put all his eggs in one basket’ when he moved to Melbourne from Wales to take a job with LTQ Engineering in Tullamarine three years ago. And now he’s paying the price. Mr Robinson is one of 164 employees devastated by the decision to cut jobs at LTQ Engineering. LTQ, which is jointly owned by Qantas and Germany’s Lufthansa Technik, will close its doors in September, having said it can’t continue because of a strong decline in engine-overhaul demand. The news comes in the same week that CMI Industries in Campbellfield announced 64 jobs would be cut by October. The job losses follow Qantas’s announcement in May that it would axe 400 employees working in its heavy-maintenance base at Tullamarine. Mr Robinson said he now had to find a way to convey the bad news to his 14-yearold daughter and eight-year-old son. ‘‘We had never been to Australia before. We felt we were promised the world. ‘‘How it’s been dealt with is pretty disappointing. I had promised them both that if we found an area that worked we would not move out of that area. ‘‘Sadly, I don’t know where that leaves us now. I just hope the government can step in to save us. This is my life.’’ Qantas will move engine maintenance jobs to Germany, Scotland, Thailand and China. Australian Workers Union state secretary Cesar Melhem said it was unlikely Tullamarine workers would find jobs in Australia. ‘‘The chance of getting another job here is very remote and that’s why I’m disappointed that Qantas hasn’t given workers a chance to see how we can turn this around.’’ Hume mayor Ros Spence said the retrenchments were terrible news for the area. ‘‘We feel for local families, workers and businesses who have been impacted by business closures and job losses.’’

Traffic lights, at last HUME residents are ‘‘overjoyed’’ to learn that six major intersections will receive $4 million funding for safety upgrades. The intersections have a history of casualty crashes and in some cases fatalities. The funding is provided by the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) through the Safer Roads Infrastructure Program and is delivered by VicRoads. Funding of $620,000 will go to installing traffic signals at the Somerton Road and Magnolia Boulevard intersection — which residents, Hume Council and local MPs have lobbied hard for. VicRoads has recorded five casualty crashes at the intersection, including a fatality in 2010. Meadow Heights resident Abbey Rudd, who started a Facebook page called ‘State Government, Fix Somerton rd, Magnolia blvd and Kirkham Dve’, said it was the best news she had heard in a long time. ‘‘I’m over the moon; a lot of people have put in hard work to get this to

happen,’’ she said. ‘‘I’m glad VicRoads has stepped up and the TAC agreed to funding. It can’t go on any longer like this. It’s getting worse; someone else is going to get killed.’’ Mayor Ros Spence has lobbied to have the intersection fixed since she started on the council. ‘‘It’s been a problem for many years,’’ she said. ‘‘It was one of the first issues I raised as a councillor. I advocated strongly and I’m very pleased that something is finally being done. It’s long overdue.’’ Work at the intersection will include the addition of a skidresistance overlay and an upgrade of the lighting. Other intersections to receive funding are Craigieburn Road and Bridgewater Road, Hume Highway and Barry Road, Sunbury-Riddells Creek Road and Dalrymple Road, Pascoe Vale Road and Dimboola Road, and Hume Highway and Somerton Road/Cooper Street. Works will being early next year. — Stephanie Zevenbergen

Have a heart, litterbugs BY STEPHANIE ZEVENBERGEN AFTER-hours furniture dumping is creating a headache for the Campbellfield Salvation Army store, with inclement weather ruining stock overnight. Marketing manager Laura Qureshi says the store, which operates MondaySaturday, is having trouble with people leaving donations at the premises on a Sunday when no one is working there to move the stock inside. She said cold and wet weather had resulted in a big amount of furniture being unsaleable. ‘‘Definitely on weekends there’s the problem of donating things at the wrong time. It’s a twopronged negative. Not only do we have to pay the cost of disposing of the unusable stock, but we also don’t get money from that sale. ‘‘Once something has been waterdamaged or stained we can’t sell that to our customers. As soon as it’s been left out in the weather it will often be ruined.’’ Ms Qureshi said people needed to be

Waste not: Salvos Campbellfield store manager Bob Westhorpe demonstrates how to use new donation bins at the site. Picture: Michael Copp more aware of the store’s trading hours. She said dumping of rubbish was also a problem at the Campbellfield store, though not as bad as some other stores. The Salvos spend about $1.5 million each year to remove the rubbish dumped outside their stores in Victoria. ‘‘Dump-

ing of rubbish [at Campbellfield] is not bad Monday to Friday, but they get a little bit of overflow on weekends,’’ Ms Qureshi said. She said good-quality furniture, including lounge suites, clean beds and chairs, was in high demand at the store. Details: 13 72 58

PUBLIC housing waiting list figures are down in Broadmeadows, but 2307 people are still in the queue. Figures from the June quarter, released by the Department of Human Services last week, show a drop of 63 applicants in the suburb since the quarter ended March. Department spokesman Brendan Ryan told the Weekly it was not possible to ‘‘break down the data’’ to see if applicants had actually been placed in public housing or whether they had been put on a waiting list in a different suburb. Tony Clarke, manager of the Glenroy Hub, a housing service that organises transitional and emergency housing in Hume and Moreland, said the fall in applicant numbers was good, but there was still work to be done. ‘‘On the face of it, it’s a good result. It’s good to see a decrease, but our experience is there is still a constant demand at the Glenroy Hub,’’ he said.

Good spot for a pool

Dent in housing list but long way to go BY STEPHANIE ZEVENBERGEN

Avid swimmers in Hume will soon be able to enjoy a new addition to the Broadmeadows Leisure Centre — a 50-metre indoor pool. Hume Council at a meeting last week approved final plans for the centre’s $13.23 million redevelopment. The works will also include a new creche and outdoor area, additional floor space in the upper-level gymnasium and refurbishments to toilets and change rooms. Mayor Ros Spence said there was an increased demand for an indoor pool. ‘‘The complex will not only cater for recreational and lap swimming, health and well-being programs, rehabilitation and extra learn-to-swim classes . . . it will also allow for the staging of competitive swimming events.’’ She said the centre recorded more than 400,000 visits during 2011-12 and the redevelopment would ensure more people could access it. The works are scheduled to finish late next year. ■ Pictured, Hume Council’s city infrastructure director Steve Crawley (left) and Ros Spence join lifeguard Daniel Stephen at the pool site.

‘‘We’re seeing a lot of people homeless. There’s no decrease in demand whether people are after public, transitional or community housing or private rental.’’ He said public housing venue numbers needed to be increased to reduce the number of people waiting for transitional housing. (Transitional housing is temporary accommodation to get homeless people and families off the streets and into a safe living environment.) Mr Clarke said the hub, which operates 200 transitional housing properties in Hume and Moreland, had 700 people waiting for transitional housing. ‘‘The focus needs to be more on increasing long-term housing . . . we’ve got people waiting to go to other community and public housing properties. ‘‘We need to work with people constructively and find them good housing, but it’s that challenge of finding good, affordable options in the area; that’s the issue we’ve got to deal with in a timely manner.’’

Road signs given short shrift BY STEPHANIE ZEVENBERGEN NINETY-ONE per cent of housing estate marketing signs along Craigieburn and Mickelham roads are either prohibited or require a permit, a Hume Council report says. Only three of the 35 signs along the two roads don’t require a permit, while 21 signs are prohibited. The signs range from two to five meters in height and two to 12 meters in width. The report stemmed from a request of Cr Drew Jessop, who noticed an increase in signage along the roads. He said while he was not anti-development, he was anti-clutter. ‘‘There seemed to be a lot of signs popping up and I thought there were some visual amenity issues,’’ Cr Jessop said. ‘‘It’s borne some fruit coming from the report. ‘‘I’m not anti-development because I realise land owners who are selling for profit, and who employ people, must be able to market and advertise. ‘‘Clearly, it’s a really difficult market at the moment and they’re competing against other areas within and beyond the city. We need to give them a reasonable playing field.’’

July 31, 2012

Wrong way: One of the questionable signs put up in Craigieburn. Craigieburn Residents Association president Erik Dober said it was a surprise to learn so many signs were erected without a permit. ‘‘The signs can be an eyesore, and permits should be enforced,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s good that council found what it found. It’d be interesting to know whether real estate companies and developers are aware of it. ‘‘It’s quite curious; you would think they

wouldn’t do it deliberately there.’’ The council report, which was adopted at a meeting last week, stated that letters would be sent to the owners of the prohibited signs, advising that they be removed immediately. Signs that require a permit will be removed until a planning permit is obtained. Developers who apply for a permit will incur a fee, depending on the size and cost of the sign.

hen six men wearing turbans and the trademark beards of their Sikh faith appeared on Australia’s Got Talent auditions it’s hard to say who was more surprised – those on stage or the audience. But within moments it became abundantly clear the Bhangra dance group from Singh Sabha Sports Club not only had talent, but an almost magnetic power to pull even the most staid from their seats. “There were 2000 people in the theatre and at the end of the performance there was not one person sitting down,” Gurdip Ahluwalia, a senior member of the Sikh community based around the Gurudwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha temple in Craigieburn, recalls proudly. “They raised the roof off. It was magnificent. It is this sort of stuff that will win people over.” It’s difficult to imagine even as little as a decade ago that a traditional dance to celebrate the Punjabi harvest would make the cut for a mainstream Australian television talent contest, much less go viral on YouTube. But such has been the cross-cultural impact of the Indian diaspora and the globalisation of its film industry that white brides are now having henna parties and footy clubs are staging Bollywood dance nights. It’s a far cry from 1990 when the Tiwari family set up shop in West Footscray and theirs was one of only three Indian grocery shops in the whole of Victoria. Now their Bharat Traders grocery store and Bollywood Fashion ‘N’ Beauty are among dozens of Indian-owned businesses in Barkly Street. “When we came we couldn’t even find the Indian rice,’’ Sheela Tiwari recalls. ‘’We had to use the thick Australian rice. That is why we started this business and at first it was very, very small.” And so was the number of Indian residents. “Back then if you saw another Indian on the street you would stop and talk to them because you would hardly ever see one,” her daughter Pratibha adds. “Now, it’s just everyday.” With the support of so many of their countrymen and women it has become easier for Indian Australians to express and share their culture as Sharon Johal, one of the contestants on the recent SBS ratings hit Bollywood Star, observes. “It was toward the my later teens, early 20s, when I actually embraced the fact that I was Indian,” reveals the lawyer, who has family in Point Cook. “Before that I used to always try to make myself look white. I grew up in a really small country town where there were no other Indians. The closest thing to us were Aboriginals. Mum was often confused as an Aboriginal person.” In spite of a typically Aussie name, Sharon recalls feeling her cultural background set her apart. “It was more ignorance than racism. People just didn’t understand why I wasn’t allowed to go to parties, why I had to be fully covered a lot of the time, or even what we ate. “If one of my school friends came to my house it would be like: ‘Your house smells of curry’ — as if

Best of Italy

BY STEPHANIE ZEVENBERGEN TWENTY-EIGHT kindergarten pupils are settling in well in new surrounds — for them and their teachers — at a learning centre in Broadmeadows. The Dimboola Early Learning Centre, which was officially opened last week, is referred to as a ‘multifunctional’ early learning venue — a first for the area. Centre manager Belinda Ferraro said the kindergarten service was already full. She said the children were making new friends quickly. ‘‘They’re all very excited. They’ve really settled in well. Because it’s a brand new centre with new facilities it’s very inviting. ‘‘The building is spacious and really gorgeous.’’ The centre combines services including preschool, longday and outside-school-hours care, special development programs, maternal and child health, and other community activities. Marie Howard, of Mission Australia Early Learning Services, which manage the centre, said Dimboola would allow more parents to return to work or study while their children were at the centre. ‘‘For the Broadmeadows community . . . Dimboola is designed to provide high-quality education and care to children from birth to 12 years of age, ensuring they make a smooth transition to school and that they’re ready to thrive.’’ Ms Howard said the centre provided 128 long-day

Calder cements finals chances BY TEO PELLIZZERI CALDER Cannons are all but mathematically guaranteed finals action in TAC Cup with a 54-point win away at Bendigo Pioneers on Saturday. Returning Vic Metro players helped the Cannons’ cause in the 13.11 (89) to 5.5 (35) win at EpsomHuntly Reserve. Calder (8-6) improved to third on the table in the top eight by three clear games from the ninth-placed Western Jets (5-9). Both Murray Bushrangers and Sandringham Dragons had the opportunity to leapfrog the

Cannons in matches played Sunday after the Weekly went to print. Coach Martin Allison said that while a number of Vic Metro players were returning to the team, it was players stepping up and taking opportunities who had impressed against the Pioneers. ‘‘The improvement we’re looking for is about trying to get some overlap hand-ball and run and carry into the team,’’ Allison said. ‘‘We’ve identified when we can get the ball into our 50m often we’re good at hitting the scoreboard . . . we’re just not getting as many 50m entries as we would like.’’

Calder kicked the only four goals of the first quarter on Saturday and victory was all but assured after consolidating in the second term to lead 58-15 at half-time. Liam McBean booted three goals for the Cannons while Jayden Walker, Rory Atkins and Daniel Ratcliffe each booted two. Calder named Atkins, Ratcliffe, Sean Hetherington, Daniel Thompson, Jake Owen and Jake Young as its best. With three rounds remaining, the Cannons play Geelong Falcons at Highgate Reserve in Craigieburn from 2pm on Saturday.

But Chinese Taipei’s Yi-Hua Huang proved too strong with a four sets to love win in the second round. The 31-year-old Chinese-born Miao will now compete in the team events for Australia, whose first-round opponent is Germany on Friday.

Mud misery for Phoenix James Tomeo of Craigieburn Phoenix plays the ball out of the slosh at Hothlyn Reserve on Saturday. Phoenix players were left muddied and heartbroken by a last-minute North West Wolves try in Victorian Rugby League. The Phoenix could not close the gap on fourthplaced Altona Roosters in first grade after the 18-14 loss left its record 3-2-6 on Saturday night. Werribee Bears and Doveton Steelers both had the chance to leapfrog Craigieburn in games played Sunday after the Weekly went to print.
