www.aipm.com.au Project Manager 7 Women in the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU) weighed in on the debate over the use of 457 visas in March. A delegation met with Prime Minister Julia Gillard to congratulate the Government for its changes to the 457 visa scheme. e delegation also asked the Government to encourage female participation in traditionally male-dominated industries and roles. "Women make up 51 per cent of the population, but only 11.7 per cent of the jobs in the mining, construction, forestry and manufacturing industries," CFMEU Women's Committee Secretary Loraine Usher told the Prime Minister. "Women represent a largely untapped source Women weigh in on 457 debate of skills for companies that may otherwise be seeking to bring in temporary foreign workers on mining and construction projects." e Federal Government has cracked down on the misuse of 457 visas, intended to provide foreign labour to cover temporary skills shortages in growing industries. Immigration Minister Brendan O'Connor points to the 21 per cent increase in 457 visas in the 12 months to February 2013 as evidence of the veracity of the Government's actions. "Contrary to those who consider 457s mainly exist to plug skill shortages in mining states, the states with the biggest growth were in Tasmania (34 per cent), South Australia (12.4 per cent) and New South Wales (7.6 per cent)," Mr O'Connor told The Australian. " ese gures are also concerning given that each of these states has higher than the national unemployment rate." e Committee of the AIPM National Conference 2013 invites submissions from academia and industry on the theme Project Management: Changing the World.
