Save Our Services is a community campaign in support of quality public services for WA. The campaign brings together members and representatives from the CPSU/CSA, SSTUWA, WAPOU, United Voice and UnionsWA.The campaign aims to ensure all West Australians, particularly those most in need, can access decent health care, schools, public transport and other Government services.

The WA State Government is implementing a plan that will see the quality of public services suffer. This will affect all Western Australians as important services like health, education, community safety and child protection are undermined. Western Australians deserve better. The Save Our Services community opposes the Barnett Government’s plan and demands investment in quality services for the benefit of all Western Australians. 

WA is a wealthy state with a growing population. We need our Government to be investing in public services so that communities across the State thrive.

On Monday Premier Colin Barnett announced a recruitment freeze on public sector jobs and funding cuts as part of the midyear review of the State Government’s finances.

We have immediately responded, calling on the Premier to reverse the job freeze decision and have sought a meeting with him and our Union’s Executive Committee.

We have also provided comment to the media and plan to have a meeting of the Peak Consultative Committee on January 20, 2016.

To give you an overall sense of the government’s stance after it has run up a $3.1 billion deficit and how it is using the public sector as a scapegoat we have compiled a list of documents for you to download.
