federal budget

Next Tuesday evening the Turnbull Government will hand down its Federal Budget. The big question is how much more can this government cut?

We have already seen $300 million stripped out over the last two federal budgets. We have seen the damage done already to refuges, community legal centres, financial counselling and support by previous budget cuts.

ASU members’ subdivision teleconferences are being convened for this week for members to be budget ready, to share information and to prepare to resist any future cuts. Click here to find out the subdivision teleconference schedule for your service type and to register to attend.

A special members’ update will also be sent out after the budget with an assessment on its impact on services.
