SA Not for Sale

SA Not for Sale

Successive governments in South Australia have privatised a large number of public services over many years. 

This started with selling off our electricity, public transport, our forestry industry, the Motor Accident Commission, our highly regarded Lands Titles Office and the sale of the Adelaide Remand Centre to notorious multinational Serco.

Now our trains, trams and road and signal maintenance have also been sold off to a conglomerate of multinational corporations. The management of government facilities and maintenance has been put out to tender.

SA Pathology was also under threat of privatisation until a broad union and community campaign prevented it.

In May 2021 the PSA, with the support of the Greens, the ALP and SA Best, was successful in achieving a parliamentary inquiry into privatisation in South Australia. 

PSA members are invited to complete this survey to help inform our submission to the Select Committee.
