Will Hodgman’s elusive wages policy
CURRENTLY we’re trying to chase down Will Hodgman’s public sector wages policy.
It’s a bit like a never ending search for that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
What we know so far:
It supposedly says that any increase for you can only be ‘up to’ 2% but we can’t find it to confirm.
The Premier and his ministry have referred to it and media outlets have reported on it but its whereabouts is unknown.
No Deputy Secretaries seem to have it.
We know it has undergone one metamorphosis so far, first it was 2%, now it’s ‘ up to’ 2%. First it didn’t allow backdating but yesterday’s ambulance offer suggests that it does, with this backdated to 2014.
We’ll keep you updated on how our search progresses.
