Gippsland Shared Services

 

The Minister for Local Government has announced that Gippsland Shared Services (GSS) project has successfully secured $4.5 million in funding.

The ASU welcomes the State Governments injection in funding into rural communities provided that it is not used to cut jobs, pay or conditions of Council staff.

The Councils have flagged in the past that an entity would be established, but have refused to provide information on how it will affect jobs and Council staff in your local community.

The CEO of Bass Coast SC sent out an email that confirms that a GSS entity will be established but it is not clear how it will operate. The Corporate Information (Records Management) function will be transitioned to the GSS, but it’s not clear what impact this will have on existing staff.

Bass Coast SC say that they are still considering transitioning other corporate service functions to the GSS in Phase 2 & 3. We do not yet know the position of the other 3 Councils and  we don’t know what this will mean for staff in the long run.

We are concerned that the GSS will be used like a Labour Hire company to undercut existing Enterprise Agreements ( i.e., your pay and conditions) and to cut jobs that your local communities cannot afford to lose.

All four councils have to meet with Local Government Victoria before anything proceeds and we have tentatively set a meeting with all four councils in late July.

Latest ABS figures show that unemployment and underemployment rates are not getting any better.

The Morrison government underspent $214m in vocational education and training programs in the last financial year, contributing to a total $919m underspend since 2014.

When is Scott Morrison going to start looking at what Australians need rather than spending his time trying to come after unions?
