PSA takes a leading role in People’s Inquiry into Privatisation

PSA - no background small with writing

Politicians at all levels of government are recklessly privatising our public services, leading to diminished service quality, lack of accountability and transparency, and removing ownership from public hands.

Now the Turnbull Government has directed the Productivity Commission to conduct an inquiry into how to further privatise our public services.

The PSA believes communities should have a say over how their services are run, by whom and what services they need.

For that reason, the PSA is working with Public Services International and the ACTU and leading the charge in the People’s Inquiry into Privatisation and its impact in NSW.

The inquiry will travel the country from 5 September until 27 October 2016.

For NSW, the dates are Newcastle on Monday 5 September, Wollongong on Tuesday 6 September, and Sydney on Thursday 8 September.

Monday 5 September in Newcastle, 4 pm – 7 pm

Travel Lodge Hotel, Newcastle

Steve Turner, Assistant General Secretary, and members impacted by privatisation will be speaking.

Tuesday 6 September in Wollongong, 4 pm – 7 pm

Novotel Wollongong, North Beach

Thursday 8 September in Sydney, 4 pm – 7 pm

Mercure Hotel, Sydney

Steve Turner will focus on the ILO complaint and the GSE Regulation with members also speaking about Prison privatisation, Land and Property Information privatisation and the outsourcing of Out of Home Care.
