In June 2022, the Tasmanian Anti-Discrimination Tribunal ordered the State Government to apologise to employees for their discriminatory conduct during the Public Sector Union Wages Campaign of 2018.
The Tribunal found that the government’s decision to refuse TOIL and other leave entitlements to union members who sought to attend a rally was discriminatory, and you should have received an email today from your Head of Agency conferring that apology.
Despite the Government’s heavy-handed approach in 2018, HACSU members won that campaign because we took action and refused to be intimidated.
As negotiations for the 2022 PSUWA campaign ramp up and the government intends to impose a miserly 2.5% wage cap, it’s time for us to take action and win again.
It’s time for a wages agreement that respects the hard work and professionalism of Tasmania’s public sector workers.
