700 jobs to go across the central

700 jobs to go across the central

The Public Health sector will lose more than 700 jobs across the central west, as part of the O’Farrell government’s cost cutting plans.

An electorate-by-electorate map was published in the Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday, revealing how communities will be affected by the cuts.

The data from the Public Service Association of NSW shows that Orange will lose 200 jobs, while Bathurst and Dubbo will both lose more than 250 jobs.

This comes after PSA general secretary Anne Gardiner says the O’Farrell government has failed to outline plans for exactly how 15,000 public service jobs will be lost, across the state.

Treasurer Mike Baird says the model is incorrect.

A spokeswomen for Mr Baird says the model is not based on actual jobs, because a labour expense cap can not be calculated with a headcount.

The government has revealed they will do all they can to ensure that public service jobs are maintained.
