Inquiry confirms consulting giants are milking the APS dry

The Community and Public Sector Union (CPSU) says a parliamentary inquiry has exposed the big multinational consulting firms for milking the public services dry. “The scrutiny comes at the same time as departmental submissions to the Turnbull Government’s APS Review have confirmed the Government’s illogical cap on Commonwealth staffing numbers is driving costly outsourcing to consulting firms and through contractors and labour hire arrangements,” says CPSU.

The community has your back on privatisation

The Community and Public Sector Union (CPSU) says it “has your back on privatization. CPSU members are winning the community's support to defeat major privatizations and cuts. While we haven't yet defeated proposals to privatize the visa system and Centrelink, we know we can win: CPSU members working together have already the privatization of Medicare, Australian Hearing and the ASIC registry. The community are coming into bat for the work we do. Almost 8,000 people have signed up to the campaign to defeat visa privatization. Hundreds of donors have together chipped in more than $17,000 just in the past month, to stop cuts to the ABC. And more than 3,000 members of the community put in submissions against the privatization of Centrelink.”
