workers approved under each Labour Agreement and dates start and end dates
of any current Labour Agreements within the Pork industry that are
currently in effect.

 

To clarify your scope:

-Are you after the number of overseas workers approved  under each  Labour
Agreement for all agreements?

Or

Agreement only in the Pork Industry?

Or

-Are you after the total number of workers approved under  "all" Labour
Agreements?

Or

Dear FOI,

Thank you..

This option please -
Are you after the number of overseas workers approved under each Labour
Agreement for all agreements?

But a breakdown of each industry please.

So for eg total number of overseas workers approved under each Labour Agreement related to each of these industries - Pork industries, Dairy, Fishing, Meat. On hire... etc

Happy to discuss

Yours sincerely,
