The 2023 conference of the Association of Industrial Relations Academics of Australia and New Zealand (AIRAANZ) provided a platform for speakers from across North and Far North Queensland to address the challenge of labour shortages in the region and present forward-looking pathways to securing a workforce with the skills needed now and into the future. We address workforce matters as they exist in rural and regional North Queensland and propose solutions to the ongoing issue of labour and skill shortages. Through the lens of lived North Queensland experience, various policy implications are outlined including a framework for localised open data initiatives, a framework for agricultural education and skilling pathways, improving regional and rural liveability and, finally, proactive consultation.
