Today, Dr Christian Rowan MP, the State Member for Moggill, is calling on the
residents of Moggill to sign an on-line petition after, under the Palaszczuk-Gordon
Government’s umbrella, 60 health employees lost their job yesterday.
Dr Rowan said “this is devastating news for staff and their families and also
shows the complete hypocrisy of Labor.”
“Yesterday morning, in the Queensland Parliament, a Senior Minister of the
Palaszczuk-Gordon Government said ‘I regard all of our staff in the public
sector as frontline staff. We will defend them’,” Dr Rowan said.
“Hours later, health workers were being marched out the door demonstrating once again that Labor cannot be trusted.”
Dr Rowan said “ this latest broken promise from Labor comes off the back of
concerns up to 1,500 electricity workers across Queensland may find their jobs
“On Sunday, we launched an online petition highlighting the precarious position of
Ergon and Energex workers” he said.
“We have a situation where Labor are claiming to save taxpayers $150 million with the merging of these entities. However, Llabor
has remained tight-lipped over where the savings would be found.”
“After today’s betrayal to slash more than 60 Health jobs, Queenslanders should be
even more concerned the biggest threat to jobs in this state is Labor.”
