“Departmental officials were simply unable to answer many workers’ questions,” said RTBU SA/NT Secretary Darren Phillips.
“The ministerial no-show was an insult to workers and all commuters who were inconvenienced by the interruption to services.”
Mr Phillips said it has been 50 days since Stephan Knoll announced South Australia’s train and tram services would be outsourced to the private sector, without presenting a business case or any financial modelling.
“That’s 50 days of secrecy, evasiveness, obfuscation and spin. We still don’t know what Mr Knoll is trying to hide, or why.
“Given that the Minister has already admitted that privatisation may not save the Government a single cent, we still don’t know the real reasons behind his dodgy privatisation plan.”
