Significant changes in FACS - Public Service Association

Significant changes in FACS

Late Friday, June 13, the PSA was advised by members that the Secretary of FACS, Mr Coutts Trotter had announced very significant changes to the employment arrangements of hundreds of senior staff.

This occurred without consultation with the PSA and involves a very short implementation time frame.

PSA members who believe this is not a matter they should feel strongly about because it only impacts on senior staff are mistaken.

If the department feels confident it can treat senior staff members with such contempt, then they will have no trouble in extending this disregard to other FACS officers.
