GM Missing me so soon? I'm confused as to why the union representatives agreed to any of the proposals at all. Nevertheless proposals are just that - proposals not agreed changes. Nothing has been decided or confirmed and I believe the states will not agree to force changes on the public sector as that would spell political disaster. I can't imagine employees will agree to any changes at all unless their cash pay is raised to compensate so that the overall remuneration remains equal. Who in the world would ever volunteer for a pay cut? As Bob Lanning is quoted as saying in the Press today "no justification has been made about why (the proposed changes) are necessary or what other alternatives have been considered."
