As an advocate for public transport, whether there are cuts on staffing in upper levels of management to improve public transport infrastructure and/or services I am for the commuters being well looked after., as long as there is a strong front-line employees , who make the Cityrail really work! They are under constant pressure to do work - some of them tell me,' There are too many bosses, up there giving us too many directions! Maybe it may be the relief they need! Who knows!
On the other hand no one wants job losses anywhere yet my suggestion would be use the money previously spent on these employee for more services better infrastructure and this in return will create more jobs and managers, If for example each employee was earning on average $75,000 per annum then this equates to a cost savings of $56,250,000if there was a job losses of 750 - redundancies. This is what I call the cycle of life'sn job and losses - which is, what goes up, goes down and comes back up again and so life is...
From the Daily Telegraph:
NSW rail cuts may prompt action - unions
UNIONS may take industrial action over the NSW
government's overhaul of RailCorp, saying it is a
disgrace that workers learned of 750 looming job cuts
through the media.
