The gloves are off: Nahan claims Labor 'can't pay'
When approached by AAP (Australian Associated Press) last week regarding the latest stoush between parties in the lead up to the State Election, we were glad to offer some insight for readers across the nation.
We told outlets that we have lodged an outline of the issues affecting the public service with parties and candidates in November of last year. To date, we have not had a response from Mr Barnett, Mr Nahan or the Liberal Party.
The Liberal government’s track record for WA’s public sector has not been positive, so before we start comparing and contrasting policies, we would like to see Liberal party’s intentions for the future of the public service.
There are many aspects to Labor’s Public Sector Policy which are very good, but there are some aspects that need to be addressed.
Currently we are in talks with key members of the Labor party about the SES and amalgamation policies, and they will continue if Labor are elected in March.
As always though, it is our role to protect the interests of our members and we don’t want to see cuts to public service.
