Australians have always been proud of our public institutions – Medicare, the ABC, our hospitals and schools. But our public services are under threat by politicians who want to privatise them so companies can run them for profit.
The Turnbull Government has directed the Productivity Commission to conduct an inquiry into how to further privatise our public services, without looking at whether handing over control of our services to corporations is in the best interests of all Australians.
But we think communities should have a say over how our services are run, and for whose benefit.
That’s why we’re supporting the People’s Inquiry into Privatisation initiated by Public Services International (PSI) Australia along with the Union submitting its own submission. We want to start a national conversation about the impacts of privatisation, and talk directly with communities about the services they need.
