Welcome to Issue 49 of the SA Public Sector Newsletter. A Bill to give South Australians the power to decide whether they want greater freedom of choice in shop trading has been introduced to the SA State Parliament. The “Referendum (Retail Trading) Bill” will enable SA electors to cast their vote on extending shop trading hours in an historic referendum to be held on the same day as next year’s state election. It would be the first referendum held in SA in over 30 years and only the tenth in the state’s history.
In other SA Parliamentary news, new laws have been passed to enable eligible South Australian public sector workers to choose their preferred superannuation fund, rather than mandatory investment in the State’s Triple S Superannuation scheme.View PDF
