Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 7 Hansard (6 June) . . Page.. 2115..
Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
(1) The Australian Bureau of Statistics advise that from 1994 the following working days per thousand employees were lost due to industrial action in the ACT:
(2) The Australian Bureau of Statistics advises that in the first quarter of 2002 0.2 working days per thousand employees were lost due to industrial action in the ACT.
(3) I cannot provide the information sought by Mr Humphries. The Australian Bureau of Statistics advises that it does not maintain information on days lost in the distinct groups as requested by Mr Humphries. The Commonwealth Department of Employment and Workplace Relations also confirms that it does not maintain such information.
(4) It is not possible to provide the information sought by Mr Humphries. Agencies have not been required to regularly report on this type of information for many years. While some Agencies have recorded some absences on the PERSPECT system the information cannot be relied upon to accurately reflect all working days lost from 1994. Agencies advise that no working days have been lost due to industrial action in the first quarter of 2002.
