Praise for the PSA

PSA National Secretary Richard Wagstaff blogs:

A shift in the right direction

The news that Treasury is looking to save 30% of costs and increase productivity in the public sector by centralising back office services may surprise some people. …

While the PSA is concerned for the interests of individual staff caught up in the process to centralise these functions, there is sense in bringing back a whole of government approach to much of the states activities, including the back office functions.

All too often unions are seen as instinctively anti-reform, no matter what its merits, and anti anything that may save money.  I’m pleased to see the PSA take a more nuanced position on this issue.
