Will the minister inform members of the terms of the Voluntary Redundancy (VR) package currently in place for public sector workers?
Will he further agree to release the terms of reference for the review of terms and conditions to be conducted as part of the Comprehensive Spending Review when they are finalised along with the person appointed to conduct the review?
Will he assure members that any changes to terms and conditions, including VR will be subject to full negotiations with employee representatives and not imposed on public sector workers as the pay freeze was?
Will he also explain to members why he considers that “it would not be appropriate” to bring any changes to terms and conditions to the States for ratification?
Does he not consider that the SEB acts on behalf of the States in employment matters and that it is accountable to the States through the chief minister for its actions?
Shades of things about to come Updated.
