The PSA is extremely disappointed with EPA management’s decision to push the realignment through at this historically challenging time. Despite the suspension of restructures in other NSW Government departments, the EPA has continually refused to postpone the implementation of this restructure despite the concerns of our members not being adequately responded to.
The PSA understands from members that there are still major failings with the realignment, such as role confusions, equity of division of reporting and uncertainty concerning specialist and generalist roles.
Management has also provided an inadequate response to the PSA’s comprehensive submission, which was compiled from the thoughts, concerns and questions of many members. The response to this submission can be found HERE. Many of the responses from EPA management have simply been “noted”.
There clearly remains a number of unresolved issues which the PSA will be raising with EPA management regarding this ill-thought-out realignment.
To discuss our response, and to hear an update on how COVID-19 affects your rights, there will be an online members meeting held this Thursday 9 April 2020 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm. To video or audio conference in, click on the following link:
