Many of our members have expressed their disappointment in the Government’s push to freeze public sector salaries and the Industrial Relations Commission’s decision to award you a miniscule 0.3 per cent pay rise, which, factoring in inflation, is actually a pay cut.
To justify blocking your pay rise, State Treasurer Dominic Perrottet claimed he would instead create jobs elsewhere in the economy. However, there are still job cuts slated for the budget this year, following from previous years’ budgets.
The State Budget on 17 November will be our chance to see if he is true to his word.
