NSW Public Sector Association has told its members it will go ahead with a planned half-day stop-work meeting for Monday 8th October despite being told by the state’s industrial umpire to refrain from the action.
A statement issued by the union said that PSA senior officers “have determined that the meetings on Monday 8th October will go ahead as planned”.
The PSA communication quoted NSW Industrial Relations Commission’s order which said the “Public Service Association and Professional Officers’ Association Amalgamated Union of New South Wales, by its officer, employees and members employed in the New South Wales public sector are hereby directed to refrain from taking industrial action on 8 October 2012”.
A spokesperson for NSW Industrial Relations minister, Mike Baird said they didn’t know about the communication from the PSA to its members.
The spokesperson said they would seek more information from the Department.
