Barnett cuts to services and jobs dishonest
UnionsWA has commented on statements made today by Premier Barnett and related media reports that the WA State Budget will include cut to services and job losses, reported to be as many as 1,000.
Meredith Hammat, Secretary UnionsWA said:
“The Premier has been dishonest with the people of WA.
“In the period leading up to the recent election he made no mention of service and public sector jobs cuts.
“For the Premier to acknowledge only that “senior management” will be under further pressure to do more with less is both dishonest and misleading.
“Those who need public services will have to wait longer or go without.
“Those who deliver and support the direct delivery of services, not just managers, will also be under pressure.
“WA’s population is growing by around 73,000 a year, our health, education and transportation services are under great pressure, which can only now get worse.”
Meredith Hammat is available for comment.
