Union representatives have staged a protest in Wollongong on the second anniversary of the O’Farrell government.
Unions NSW and area nurses, firefighters, TAFE teachers and council staff aired their views at Denison Street yesterday.
South Coast Labour Council secretary Arthur Rorris said the campaign was like a ‘‘mid-year report card’’ and the government had failed to deliver in key areas.
‘‘The Premier came into power promising to save NSW and the result for regions like ours are a starving of funds for our hospitals and schools and a fire sale of assets such as the port and other areas,’’ Mr Rorris said.
‘‘Even though governments get elected for four-year terms, we think it’s fit and proper that there be some accountability and that we should look at their performance to date and whether they’ve met their own benchmarks ... there’s gaping holes in the promises and the actual result that we’ve got today.’’
Unions NSW secretary Mark Lennon is leading the campaign at sites across the state, including Newcastle today.
