The Community and Public Sector Union will tonight launch an ad “that claims the global financial crisis is putting more pressure on public servants in Centrelink and other departments”.
PUBLIC servants will launch an unprecedented campaign against their political masters today to protect their jobs from budget cuts.
Through the Community and Public Sector Union, the federal bureaucracy will warn the public that essential services will be cut if jobs are slashed.
I guess the union does not realise that they are criticising their own, but the main point is actually true – the government should not cut any public sector jobs in this GFC. It is now more important than ever that the public service is there to support the public.
