PSA General Secretary, Stewart Little, said “the Association is deeply concerned about the impact of cuts to public services and associated job losses in regional NSW, an issue we believe was a significant factor in the recent Orange by-election.”
“Public services and employment play a critical role in sustaining the economic activity and social fabric of our regional cities and towns.”
“If implemented, these cuts will have a deep and lasting impact on services to the vulnerable and the local economies which rely on public sector employment for their viability”, said Stewart.
