Lisa Matthews is the United Australia Party’s candidate for the Tasmanian electorate of Franklin.
Lisa has an extensive background working with industry and business, including as a workplace relations adviser to small businesses in Tasmania. She has represented the interests of resource industry employers in local, state, national and Asia-Pacific contexts.
“Having an in-depth knowledge of Australia’s workplace relations legislation, it saddens me to see a key principle of that system, that people should not be coerced into entering employment contracts, is being cast aside with Covid mandates,’’ she said.
Lisa has worked in the education sector, including preparing HSC exam papers and supporting the development of programs to prepare high school students for the world of work and has also been a daily news editor and journalist.
“I support wholeheartedly those who choose not to take a vaccination based on their research and individual circumstances and will work to ensure they are treated with dignity and respect by government, the media and their fellow Australians,’’ she said.
