Fire fighter comment available on NSW public sector job cuts

 

Fire Brigade Union President Darin Sullivan is available this morning to comment on the impact of 10,000 NSW public sector job cuts on fire protection in NSW.

"The Government is hiding behind a fig leaf when it claims front line services won't be affected by these cuts.  If you cut back office services, a lot of that work will then need to be done by the front line.  Fire protection will be impacted."
