Petition to Victoria Racing Club, against exclusion of Industry Employees

This petition had 2,629 supporters

A Petition on behalf of the Stable and Industry Licence holders of Racing Victoria.

We the undersigned, draw the attention of Victoria Racing Club, to the proposed amendments to the Stable Employee access for the duration of the Flemington 2017 Spring Racing Carnival.

An integral part of the success of such an event depends on the dedication and hard work of all Stable Employees without whom the Spring Carnival would not be possible. The proposed restrictions to be implemented are contrary to tradition where by Stable  and Industry Employees are granted all access, to implement such will see support withdrawn by us as a body to Victoria Racing Club,  proving detrimental to the success of the Flemington Carnival. Endless hours of preparation goes into the horses presented at Flemington over the duration of the carnival. This dedication to our industry provides the VRC with one of, if not the best racing events world wide. If academically researched the numbers of staff present in the mounting yard and stabling areas will clearly show our presence is not an issue. To make such last minute changes is unjust and is viewed by us as a dismissal. 
Every other Racecourse within Victoria welcomes stable employees with open arms as is standard world wide,does Victoria Racing Club wish to be seen as pioneering for all the wrong reasons ? 

Therefore we the signatories, request that Victoria Racing Club revoke the changes of Stable and Industry Employees access and show us the  us respect deserved for bringing this carnival to life, with full support of trainers and jockeys we submit this request.
