Sparkies and plumbers still arcing up over extra red tape

Tassie plumbers and electricians are banding together, unhappy with the Continued Professional Development point systems being rolled out in the industry.

A forum on Tuesday evening, with presentations from the Minister for Building and Construction, Guy Barnett, and Director of Building Control, Dale Webster, saw approximately 350 tradies in attendance.

Local plumber Andrew Foley, owner of Andrew Foley Plumbing, called Brian Carlton as part of Free Range Friday, to encourage all licenced electricians and plumbers to attend the northern meeting, taking place at 6:30pm this coming Monday, 20th February at the Tram Sheds in Launceston.

"This system will not work as it stands at the moment," Mr. Foley says.
