The perils of privatisation

The Stick Together Show. Last year, the NSW Government announced plans to privatise its electricity sector – a move not supported by unions, the majority of delegates to the NSW ALP conference in May, or, as it turns out, by most of the NSW parliament. On September 5, Morris Iemma resigned as Premier of NSW. The state now has a new Premier, Nathan Rees, and a new Cabinet.

Scott McNamara, the United Services Union Energy and Utilities manager will join us to talk about the Stop The Sell-Off Campaign unions in NSW have been running in response to the electricity privatisation plans. We’ll also get some insight into the recent political developments in NSW from Greens MP John Kaye, and then an international perspective on the costs of electricity privatisation in South Africa, from Trevor Ngwane of the Anti-Privatisation Forum and the Soweto Electricity Crisis Committee.
