Our Union, the WA PTA Branch, is a proud contributor of The Public Good, a community campaign led by WA unions.
The Public Good works to highlight the prominent and positive role that the public sector workforce and public services play in the lives of Western Australians. Now more than ever we know how important the public sector is. In the current pandemic we turn towards public sector workers for health care and public transport among many other services that keep our State running.
The sale of public assets and contracting out undermines the quality of our public services. Privatisation leads to the loss of public sector jobs, rising costs of services, maintenance and safety concerns, and a lack of accountability. Cuts to public services mean that those keeping our community safe, strong, and healthy must do more with less.
We will always take a stand against Governments who seek to remove services from public hands. Privatisation fails to deliver services for less and instead just delivers less services. We are proud that the current State Government will continue to value our public sector workforce and invest in our public sector for the benefit of the whole community.
We look forward to them winning the upcoming State election to be held 13th of March 2021.
