MTAA CEO Richard Dudley, Federation Representatives and Franchising Taskforce Members

The Motor Trades Association of Australia (MTAA) met with the Government’s Franchising Taskforce on behalf of Federation Members on 13 August. The Task Force is examining the recommendations of the Fairness in Franchising’ report, handed down by the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Corporations and Financial Services.

MTAA outlined to the Taskforce its support for the report’s recommendations and reiterated the Federation’s, Member’s and their constituents’ position on the need for urgent specific solutions to problems being experienced by franchisees in automotive industries.

As part of discussions, MTAA welcomed confirmation that the Industry Department is continuing its advanced work on the identification of specific solutions to now well documented concerns regarding franchising in new car, motorcycle, farm and industrial machinery retailing, as well briefings on the broader considerations of the Taskforce.

MTAA CEO, Richard Dudley thanked the Taskforce for a very constructive consultation and for the opportunity to provide input into the Taskforce’s investigations.  He reminded the Taskforce that the MTAA and Members remained available to provide input into the Taskforce’s work as it further considers Government’s response to the ‘Fairness in Franchising’ report recommendations due later this year.
