Description

This year, as part of our Annual General Meeting, we are very pleased to have Yvonne Henderson as our special guest speaker. Yvonne was the WA Commissioner for Equal Opportunity from 2003-2013, and a WA state Member of Parliament from 1983-1996 and most recently was a member of the panel on the People’s Inquiry Into Privatisation.

Yvonne will be speaking at the AGM about her experience on the panel of the People’s Inquiry Into Privatisation.

As part of our Agreement negotiations, we opted to remove the ‘No Privatisation’ clause we sought as part of our initial claim because we were unable to reach an acceptable position with the Labor Government on privatisation. In large part, this is because of the sheer number of contracts outsourced in areas covered by Your Union Agreement, a figure estimated to be in the vicinity of 8500 contracts. We have chosen to push on and further make the case to this Government, they were elected on a platform of stopping privatisation, and we intend to hold them to it.

Yvonne’s experience travelling Australia in 2016 talking to workers and communities about their experience of privatisation will help to inform our renewed campaign opposing privatisation. The CPSU/CSA made a significant contribution to the Perth hearings with heart wrenching evidence from DSC families and staff facing the privatisation of group homes and TAFE staff trying to give young Australians a start while the former State government undermined and dismantled the TAFE system.

With the People’s Inquiry final report due to be handed down on the 23 October, it’s a great time to refresh our memories on the Inquiry and to talk about the recommendations it is likely to make.

Light nibbles and drinks to follow.
