BOM Jobs quietly go East!

 

The Bureau of Meteorology, like many Commonwealth agencies, is pursuing an agenda to centralise its staff to the eastern states.

 

While this may appear more efficient, there is a strong likelihood the accuracy of forecasting will diminish, as local knowledge disappears.

 

In particular, staff in rural and remote areas who man weather stations will disappear, resulting in inaccurate forecasting.

 

The loss of 30-40 skilled jobs in Western Australia will also have some impact on our economy, both in Perth and across WA.

 

Most other agencies, including the ABC media, Defence, Centrelink, and the public service generally, have only a very small fraction of their staff employed in Western Australia.

The only party willing to do something about the loss of Commonwealth jobs in Western Australia is the WESTERN AUSTRALIA PARTY.

 

The Western Australia Party opposes the centralisation of BoM and all Commonwealth jobs to the eastern states.

 

The only satisfactory result for Western Australia is 11% per capita share of Commonwealth jobs in Western Australia!
