Scandal-prone former Deputy Premier John Barilaro’s (pictured above) appointment to an overseas trade job, and subsequent revelations about the salary paid to the person filling the same role in London, were a hot topic for the PSA/CPSU NSW podcasts and TikTok platforms.

“John Barilaro’s career was marked with controversy,” said PSA/CPSU NSW Manager Communications and Campaigns Marianne Ledic. “He may have driven his colleagues mad with the never-ending media diversions, but he also kept us busy highlighting the fallout from his appointment to the role of New York Trade Commissioner and the treatment of a senior public servant who had already been appointed to the job.

“Later revelations about Stephen Cartwright [pictured right campaigning for the Liberal Party], who represented NSW in London while paid $600,000 a year, added fuel to the fire.

“Members can be assured we will go into the issues that affect them.”

Recent podcasts also cover the recent flood enquiries and subsequent finger-pointing at underfunded agencies.

New PSA/CPSU NSW podcasts are released weekly. They can be downloaded on popular broadcasting hosts via the PSA and CPSU NSW websites.

“In the lead-up to next year’s state election, we urge members to tune into our podcasts and hear how the parties compare,” said Ms Ledic.
