Retail workers and supporters from across the South East region are calling on MPs to reject moves to allow stores to trade on Boxing Day.  

The NSW Treasurer introduced legislation into Parliament last week that would allow stores across the state to trade on Boxing Day.

NSW Secretary, Bernie Smith says the move would rob thousands of retail workers and their families of the ability to spend the Christmas period together.

Over 150 workers from across the state joined Santas yesterday, marching on State Parliament to call on politicians to protect Boxing Day from retail trading.

At the rally, Opposition Leader, Luke Foley, was presented with thousands of signatures from workers and supporters, including many from the South East region.

NSW Ambulance paramedics are reminding local farmers to take safety precautions when around livestock, following several serious incidents on Saturday.

NSW Ambulance Superintendent Steve Flanagan says incidents involving livestock and vehicles such as quad bikes and tractors lead to significant injuries and even death.

Data shows paramedics responded to 152 incidents involving cows and 106 involving bulls since July 2015.

Superintendent Flanagan says to assist paramedics in attending incidents that occur in remote locations, people should provide as much information as possible when speaking to Triple Zero.
