Keep WA Job Network employees off the bread line - keep jobs and business in WA
- Federal Minister for Employment Participation Brendan O'Connor and the Federal Government
WA not-for-profit, community based providers of the Job Network program will have their Commonwealth Government funded contracts, worth hundreds of millions of dollars, revoked from the 30 June and handed to for-profit providers; some based overseas.
This decision will leave thousands of people who work for these community providers laid off and looking for work themselves.
Be a community advocate for those providers that are loosing their contacts and have been silenced via non-disclosure clauses in their 2009-2012 applications by the Federal Government.
This petition will run until the start of April 2009 and be forwarded onto Australian Greens Senator Rachel Siewart to help demonstrate the impact of the Governments decision.
We, the undersigned, call on the Federal Minister for Employment Participation, Brendan O'Connor, to reconsider the allocation of Job Network contracts to For-Profit service providers and reinstate contracts to current not-for-profit, community-based providers [listed above] to prevent thousands of WA Job Network employees being our of a job and to safeguard community service agencies in WA.
