Win for public sector workers

THE Premier has seen the error of her ways and is set to rule out forced redundancies.

It’s great news for public sector workers who’ve struggled with the fear of losing their jobs since 2011.

The CPSU’s always held the view forced redundancies were not necessary to make cuts the government said it needed to make.

Today that view’s been proven correct.

To pursue the degree of confidence public sector workers require, the CPSU will continue to lobby for the government to amend the State Service Act to remove the power for any future government to make public sector workers forcibly redundant.

The CPSU thanks all Members and the public who took part in the Remove the Threat, Restore the Confidence campaign. It was your support that helped give momentum to lobby the Premier to reverse her decision on forced redundancies.
