Monday's resolution

The resolution step up the campaign says:
That this meeting of PSA members condemns the cuts to jobs and conditions of employment imposed and proposed by the O'Farrell Government.

  • Halt job cuts in the NSW Public Sector;

Problems on Monday

Most of Monday's webcast worked really well. However there were some venues where the equipment didn't perform as expected. For that we apologise.

We will be reviewing all aspects of the broadcast and meetings to minimise the glitches and venue failures we had on Monday.

This is the first time we have done a webcast and the first time we have broadcast live from a meeting. It was big job and it went well.

Our main problems were at a few venues where some of the equipment was not up to the job. We aim to find out what can be done to avoid that in future. Webcasting has a lot of potential but we need a better understanding of the many technologies in the venues to make it work really well.
