PSA takes 2.5% after government ends attack on conditions

PSIlogoThe Public Sector Association has accepted a 2.5% pay offer after the state government backed off from its attempt to cut or overhaul workplace conditions such as sick leave, leave loading, parental leave and family and community service leave.

Last year a High Court decision found that the government had a legal right to impose a 2.5% wage cap on public sector workers’ salaries.

The PSA says this is still bad law and it will continue to campaign to fight the wages legislation and have the law repealed.
