Departmental Secretaries have received a minimum payrise of 31% and yet the Public Services were only granted a 3% payrise, by this Tribunal, which did not even match the average of 4.1% for the Private Sector. So for these Senior staff they warranted a 10 times larger wage rise than their staff that do all the work in the Departments.
We insist that your first Coalition Government review this and have it amended to a more acceptable wage.
We the people of Australia, who have not had a chance to have our say previously demand you and your colleagues have an urgent review into this outrageous pay increase for politicians and reduce your wages to acceptable levels. This includes the outrageous raise paid to Senior Public Service staff.
While the rest of Australia is struggling and many aren't able to obtain pay rises due to the economic condition of this Nation, Politicians and Senior Public Servants have accepted a pay that is not only unacceptable here it is unacceptable anywhere in this world.
