SA Not for Sale
Successive Governments in South Australia have privatised a large number of public services over many years. This started with selling off our electricity, public transport, our forestry industry, the Motor Accident Commission, our highly regarded Lands Titles Office and most recently the sale to multinational Serco of the Adelaide Remand Centre.
Currently SA Pathology, our trains and trams, Service SA and the Motor Registry, and road and signal maintenance are all facing the threat of privatisation, and there may be more prisons sold to private providers like Serco in the future.
Alongside privatisation there has also been a direct and sustained attack on public services through budget cuts, leaving diminished public services and putting enormous pressure on the workers delivering them.
We urgently need to demand quality public services and stop privatisation.
what do we want?
A well-resourced public service for all South Australians.
An end to privatisation of public services.
Review current privatised service arrangements.
Investment in new public assets and public sector capacity.
A secure, professional and highly skilled public sector workforce.
