Public Forum: Stand up for CSIRO – Stop CSIRO job cuts – invest in science
Friends of CSIRO has recently been set up in other Australian States
to campaign against the current job cuts in climate, land and water research.
The projected loss of key people has undermined CSIRO staff morale,
and will impact on CSIRO’s research capacity.
These cuts follow reductions in CSIRO funding in 2014
which led to the loss of many jobs.
Please attend to hear about the situation and
to add your voice to the campaign.
