Campbell Newman, Premier of Queensland: Don’t Privatise or contract out our Queensland Jobs or Services. Our Queensland, Our Future.

    1. Petition by

      The Services Union

Peter Costello has recommended privatising Queensland assets including our electricity, passenger rail and ports and outsourcing jobs.

To:
Campbell Newman, Premier of Queensland
Don’t sell our Queensland assets.

As Queenslanders we want our essential services, particularly electricity and passenger rail, to be affordable and reliable. Privatisation, contestability or outsourcing will make these services more expensive and less reliable.

Please don’t sell our Queensland jobs and services.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I'm sick to death of governments both State and Federal 'selling the cow'. Once it's gone, we can NEVER get it back. DON'T SELL OUR ASSETS... How short sighted can you be?

      Keep jobs and public money in Queensland not for LNP mates and overseas

      Once these assets are gone that is it - gone for ever!! Would you sell your home to live in a rental property if you didn't have to? The Newman government is doing what Labour did - so why vote for any of these major parties at all.

      Greed is ruining our country already! We don't need multinationals who ONLY care about money and not the people to control our essential services. So many are on low incomes and struggle to survive now, please don't make it harder for everyday Australians to cope with the basic cost of living!

      As the cost of living continues to rise, the privatization of state assets will only make living costs rise more! I want a great affordable future for my children and by selling assets o/s my children will suffer and so will this country. Please allow for the future to stay in Australia and not leave our shores.
