According to recent reports, two government departments are planning industrial action over their employers' inadequate attempts to improve pay and conditions.

    Isn't it odd that the CPSU ramps up its threats in the lead up to Easter. The last time they did this was in the lead up to Christmas. Seems o be a pattern developing here.

    There has been other industrial action held by other departments that doesnt correlate to either christmas or easter. The entire public sector (all and every government department) is in protracted negotiations over their enterprise agreements. These agreements ended in July 2014 and unions have been talking with department representatives on salary and working conditions since then. I find it interesting that you use the word 'threat'. Industrial action is not a threat. It is a legitimate course of action as recently recognised by the Fair Work Commission when it approved the CPSU application to take industrial action.
