October Public Sector Meetings

MEMBERS! PLease be advised of some upcoming public sector meetings to hear from Members on the government’s proposed wage freeze and how we can stop them from cutting another 500 jobs.


Please find the details of these meetings below.


There are some main meetings, we’re holding along with HACSU, plus a series of schools meetings in conjunction with the AEU. Please also find combined CPSU and United Voice Tasmanian Prison Service meetings.


We need to act to stop the government from slashing a further 500 jobs, cutting frontline services and the economy into reverse. Just because the government has decided to act childishly doesn’t mean we need to change the responsible approach we have always taken to dealing with difficult financial circumstances. We’ll be putting a formal proposal to these meetings and asking members to vote on that proposal so it’s crucial you attend and participate.


Approval has been granted for meetings in paid time with reasonable travel time to and from the events, subject to business requirements. You should advise you manager of attendance and everything should be done to facilitate your attendance.



Make sure you come to a meeting and have your say!
