The ASU continues to lobby the State Government around the proposed ‘modernisation’ of VicRoads. We all know that ‘modernisation’ is a euphemism for ‘privatisation’.
However you spin it, this will put jobs, wages and conditions at risk. We could also see big increases in registration costs, the closure of customer service centres, and your data made available to the private sector.
That’s why we have developed this petition. Ask everyone you know to sign it!
ASU members have told us repeatedly that remaining in the public sector is the most important issue to them and that the public will be anger at the risks to data security and rising registration. It is important that these wishes are heard throughout this process, and we don’t have a Labor government forcing workers out of these good secure jobs.
We call on the government to halt this process, and to ensure all VicRoads workers remain in the public sector and do not pay the price for successive government failures to deal with an ageing IT system.
Please sign our petition here https://www.megaphone.org.au/petitions/don-t-sell-out-vicroads-workers and encourage all of your colleagues, friends, and family to do the same.
If you have any questions, or would like to arrange a meeting in your workplace, please contact Organiser Matt Price at firstname.lastname@example.org
