Public servants are standing strong for Queenslanders in need this Christmas

Posted December 23, 2011 by Alex Scott

The union of public sector workers is sending thanks and support to the many public sector workers who are bracing for the Christmas rush, one of the busiest times of the year for some agencies.

Today we’re sending words of support to the many public sector workers who are just hitting their holiday working stride as Queensland families are starting to wind down for the holidays,” Together Secretary Alex Scott said today.

“This Christmas while millions are kicking back  and relaxing with loved ones it’s going to be all

systems go across Queensland’s public hospital emergency departments and wards, as well as our state’s correctional facilities and Queensland Police call centres.

“This is also one of the busiest times for workers at Communities, including those who are assisting children with safety concerns.

“There are so many Queenslanders who shall be facing really tough times these holidays, and public sector workers shall be backing these people up in their time of need.

“Public servants are dedicated to ensuring there’s quality health care, supervision and safety in our state’s prisons and that there’s a calm guiding voice at the end of the phone for those seeking Police assistance.

“It’s also a time of preparation for emergency services.

“Crews are steeling themselves for any hazardous summer events with the memories of last year’s disaster responses still fresh in their minds.

“All this at a time of a fresh industrial dispute about the future of Queensland Health services as well as political campaigning ahead of the next election.

“Regardless of the times, our members are focused on working for our Queensland community this and every holiday season.

“Our members are working away, planning for the future of quality public services during these years of high population growth,  regardless of the industrial battles and the politics.

 “The vital work of public servants for our Queensland community doesn’t happen without the support of our members’ family and friends, to whom we also send our thanks these holidays.”
