NT public sector 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

Dear Northern Territory Public Servants My name is Yasmin and up until two months agoI was a public servant 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 redundancies 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 weredemotedto 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 workloadsand a stressful work environment filled with uncertainty, confusion and fear. It’s 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 Liberal government. 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. Sincerely Yasmin
