The state government wants to force through the most serious ever attacks on public servants' rights and conditions, bringing in legislation which is worse than WorkChoices.

Barnett & Buswell are stripping services around the state, cutting the pool of top-up funding provided to non-government organisations that provide human services & cutting their share of public library funding by 40% (along with other cost shifting exercises).

Join us to discuss how public servants & the community can fight back.
