Disagree on both.
1 New administration gets in takes blow torch to APS major cuts across board, major redundancy payments involved. Six months later Department heads advise Ministers more staff required. So numerous staff who have holiday on public purse get hired by contractor for $50 an hour contractor adds $25 government now paying $75 an hour for staff. Six months later APS decides to rehire staff. However clause in contract ensures that contractor is paid out of contract to tune of six to twelve months salary.
And APS will subcontract whole recruitment process out to private firms, now that is where the big money is.
How is this effective and it happened in 1996, 2007 and will happen again this year if administration changes.
2 As associate lecturing demands change and you may not teach same subject the following year. This is also case for TAFE so 3:1 still stands.
