NT Chief Minister refuses to rule out sacking for refusal of ‘voluntary pay freeze’1:57
Northern Territory Chief Minister Michael Gunner isn’t ruling out sacking executive-level public servants in the event that they refuse to enroll to a pay freeze for a minimum of the following three years.
‘Everybody will be taking the pay freeze,’ Mr Gunner says, and in the event that they don’t ‘they’ll have a separate dialog’.
Previous to Christmas, the territory was on observe to succeed in a web debt of $35 billion in a decade if it didn’t reign in spending, which was adopted by a plan introduced in April to freeze the pay of politicians and senior public servants.
There are roughly 21,000 public servants within the territory, making up nearly 10 per cent of the inhabitants which the Australian Bureau of Statistics locations at 247,000.
