Impact of protracted bargaining on Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet employee morale

Ato Nduvho made this Freedom of Information request to Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet

Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet did not have the information requested.

From: Ato Nduvho


Dear Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet,

I understand negotiations for a new enterprise agreement for non-SES staff have progressed extremely slowly over the last 2 years.

As a taxpayer I am concerned any 'savings' from deliberate government delays are having a negative impact on employee morale which in turn would negatively impact the productivity of the department as a whole.

I am seeking the following documents in this FOI:

1. All documents which address, or mention, the impact of prolonged bargaining on employee morale. This includes all impact, whether actual, perceived, anticipated, or otherwise.

2. Documents which describe how employee morale has been measured over time, covering a period of at least the last 2 years.

3. All documents which detail the estimated productivity losses resulting from prolonged bargaining and/or decreased employee morale.

Yours faithfully,

Ato Nduvho
