Centrelink, Medicare Strike

Public servants at Centrelink, Medicare and Child Support will up the stakes in their long-running fight with the Department of Human Services over pay and conditions ... starting two weeks of rolling strikes today.


The agency's staff could strike from 30 minutes to a day each time in the fresh wave of industrial action, which the Community and Public Sector Union has blamed on the DHS' unwillingness to compromise in negotiations.

CPSU National Secretary Nadine Flood  says phone and face-to-face services will be affected.
