The dispute – lodged under Chapter 2, Part 2 of the Fair Work Act 1994 – seeks conciliation and/or arbitration in relation to the state-wide industrial action, planned for Monday.
Treasurer Rob Lucas said this assurance is “vital to ensure the safety of the South Australian public, as well as prison officers and prisoners”.
“Their actions have left us no other option but to lodge a notification of an industrial dispute under the Fair Work Act in the SA Employment Tribunal and we have sought an urgent compulsory conference.
“At the end of the day, the Government respects people’s right to protest, but that can never override the public’s right to feel safe.”
