Premier follows up on promised ban of water sell-off.
Privatisation was a big issue in the 25 March 2023 election, with particular focus on the state’s water provision services.
On 31 May 2023, the Minns Labor Government amended the state constitution to protect Sydney Water and Hunter Water from sale.
Bizarrely, the long-time privatisation cheerleaders in the Liberal and National Party Coalition wanted to extend this bill to all water utilities.
“We welcome the first steps towards stopping privatisation,” said PSA CPSU NSW General Secretary Stewart Little. “Hopefully we can then move on to the next step, bringing privatised services back to the Public Sector, where they belong.”
