Premier Daniel Andrews would not be drawn on resolving the crisis at Alstom's Ballarat facility, leaving more than 60 workers high and dry.
Two week ago, union representatives called for the Premier and his ministers to meet with workers at the factory to save their jobs.
Alstom builds metropolitan trains, but the current contract for five new trains is set to expire in May - the company has submitted designs for the next generation of trains but has received no commitment to begin building them, which would ensure work potentially continues until 2023.
The lack of communication has workers furious.
Ballarat Regional Trades and Labour Council secretary Brett Edgington said a meeting should be urgently arranged, and the uncertainty created for workers and their families is "unacceptable".
"The really disappointing thing is that a fortnight has gone by and we have not heard anything from the Premier or his ministers in regard to that urgent resolution that was passed," he said on Friday.
"This is just leading to the stress and anxiety of this workforce that know that after May next year there is nothing safe or secure about the future of their jobs or Alstom in Ballarat.
"We know that time is running out, Alstom have announced that sometime in September they will make a decision as to the future of the North workshops and operations here in Ballarat - we're nearly halfway through September, there's not much time left."
The workshop committee, made up of members from the Rail, Bus and Tram Union, Electrical Trades Union, and Australian Manufacturing Workers Union, has met with local representatives but is still waiting to hear back from any ministers.
AMWU delegate Ashley Mabbitt said it was disappointing.
"I've had meetings with the Transport Minister and she gave me the guarantee she'd come up here six weeks ago and meet with us, and we're still waiting for her," he said.
"The mood at the moment's a bit sombre, obviously people are a little nervous about what's going on in the next eight months not knowing.
"To take a big employer out of town like this is a big hit - a lot of (local workers), if they want to stay in the industry, will have to go to Melbourne or other areas, other states."
In a statement, Premier Andrews said his government "saved Alstom when we came to government and have supported them and their workers ever since."
"We speak with Alstom regularly and continue to support local workers through our huge investment in new trains for our growing rail network."
