ACT Labor have again found themselves in a web of dishonesty following the first round of forced redundancies being announced by the Department of Climate Change yesterday.
In an all-staff meeting, Department Secretary Blair Comley announced job cuts were imminent and far greater than had been originally forecast.
“Only a week ago, Kate Lundy said she was pleased there would be no forced redundancies”, Senator Humphries said today.
“There is a disconnect between the Treasurer and his ACT members who clearly have no clue what their own party is planning”.
Department bosses have been coming under increased pressure to shed jobs since Labor increased the efficiency dividend to its highest ever level and delivered a budget that now tries to claw back money the Government have been out spending.
The Federales appear to be trying some frog boiling with Canberra.
