Dubbo Industrial Relations Branch set to close

Dubbo Industrial Relations Branch set to close

The NSW office of Industrial Relations branch in Dubbo is among those expected to close due to spending cuts from the Federal Government.

The industrial relations branch monitors wages, employment rights and employment issues in the mid-western region.

The Fair Work ombudsman has made the decision not to renew the contracts of the inspectors which are due to expire in June. The public service association says up to 6 people may be left without jobs.

The assistant general secretary, Steve Turner, says he believes the NSW Government has an ongoing responsibility to look after the workers in the state.

Mr Turner says the government should continue providing funding for the program to ensure workers in the state are paid appropriately.
