Office of the Public Advocate update

23 November 2016

The PSA has notified the Attorney Generals Department (AGD) of the continuing industrial dispute regarding changes to the Office of the Public Advocate (OPA).

The OPA response is provided here and the recent PSA dispute notification is provided here.

OPA has progressed some matters as requested by the PSA, however have not addressed the significant key concerns of pre-determined outcomes regarding this process and attempts to run multiple process. This is a procedural matter and the PSA is highly concerned that AGD have attempted to avoid any genuine dispute resolution with the PSA. The PSA encourage all members to report any further inappropriate behaviours during this process.

The PSA will continue to meet with members while awaiting an outcome to the current dispute.
