''The State Government is privatising essential services in our hospitals. The LHMU and Health Services Union have united to fight the State Government's privatisation agenda because we know that privatisation will lead to lower standards and poorer quality of care in our hospitals. We also know that it will result in fewer jobs, lower pay and increased workloads for hospital workers.
Recent experiences in Australia and around the world have shown that the privatising of government services has eroded the quality of care and lowered standards in hospitals. The State Government argues that privatisation saves money, but experience shows that privatised health services often cost taxpayers more money.
The fight against privatisation is a fight we cannot afford to lose. Please join our campaign to keep our hospitals In Public Hands.''
