Treasurer Rob Lucas said the fact nearly 80 per cent (or 692) of 875 SA public primary, secondary and preschools have reported they will stay open – 194 with a modified program – was a clear indication union bosses had failed to mount a convincing case for action.
“Let there be no mistake – this is a resounding vote of no-confidence in the union bosses whose ill-conceived rush to strike has been shown to be puerile in the extreme,’’ said Treasurer Lucas.
“They’ve shown poor judgment and complete lack of regard for hardworking parents and grandparents in their race to industrial action.
“Parents, grandparents and many teachers know that the Marshall Government is delivering a record investment in education and there is no plausible, logical or rational reason in the world for the union bosses to be striking.”
“Union bosses should be discussing with the Government the best ways to spend this massive increase in funding to impact positively on student learning outcomes, rather than going on strike,’’ said Treasurer Lucas.
