THE State Government has announced a review of the Public Sector Management Act, despite conceding that aspects of the act are less than ideal.
Consumer and Employment Protection Minister John Kobelke said the review would help to develop a more efficient public sector, and ensure grievances were dealt with fairly.
“The terms of reference will allow consideration of wider access to the WA Industrial Relations Commission for public sector workers and we will consult widely with key stakeholders,” Mr Kobelke said.
“The new work is not intended to duplicate previous reviews of the act, but it will help bring together public sector management reforms already identified by the State Government.”
The Community and Public Sector Union/Civil Servants Association has welcomed the review, to be carried out by Perth lawyer and former public sector CEO Noel Whitehead. The review is expected to deliver its findings in November.
