Jobs and services matter
Public sector jobs are essential to the Territory: for our members in those
jobs and for the broader community who rely on the services they provide.
What is the ALP saying?
Right around Australia, Liberal state Governments are making massive
cuts to public sector jobs and services. These cuts have happened despite

The real Queensland story
The public sector under a Liberal government
Dear Northern Territory Public Servants
My name is Yasmin and up until two months ago I was a public
in Queensland. Before the Queensland election, Campbell
Newman and his Liberal National Party repeatedly assured
public servants that their jobs were safe
– and now like
thousands of my former colleagues, I am unemployed.
For four years I had worked in project and policy officer roles
across Community, Disability and Housing Services. I was
passionate about my job and worked hard to improve
outcomes for my community.
I was proud to be a public servant
and enjoyed seeing the positive impact of my work
on Queenslanders and their families.
In the lead up to the Queensland election, Campbell Newman and his Liberal National Party promised public servants that we had nothing to fear
– that there would be no forced
and that front-line staff would be protected.
Unfortunately this was not the case.
Since the conservatives came to power in Queensland more than 7,700 public servants have
lost their jobs
with thousands more under threat. And they have now redefined who is ‘front-line’. The first to go were the temporary staff
– regardless of their work performance or years of
service. Then those acting on higher duties were demoted to their substantive positions
resulting in significant wage losses and reduced entitlements. Now it’s permanent employees
who are under threat
– forced to reapply for their own positions with no right of appeal.
But this is not just about those public servants like me who have lost their jobs. It is about those
left behind - public servants who face the constant threat of retrenchment, increasing
workloads and a stressful work environment filled with uncertainty, confusion and fear
also about the essential services the public sector provides and services that the community
relies on, like BreastScreen Qld. and the Working Women’s Centre that being cut under the
I, and my fellow public servants in Queensland, were deceived by the Liberal National Party
who told us ‘public servants have nothing to fear’. We feel disrespected, demoralized and
generally done over. You can’t trust that your job will be safe
under a conservative government. I should know. It’s
too late for Queensland, but it’s not too late for the Northern Territory.
I urge you not to make the same mistake.
