I feel like I'm on a treadmill out the door. And yes the default position is to support the manager. HR even wrote it in an email when I complained about the unfairness of a particular decision.

I've asked certain members of the team who have been impacted to also make a complaint. If at least four or five people make a complaint about their treatment it would provide a strong position. However the whole team is scared to bits and everyone has refused.

Many thanks for your support.

Hi Steve, many thanks for your comment.

I have received a contact from APS Dignity. The scope is wider than HR but HR are facilitating matters by supporting the managers and refusing to resolve any complaints. Its incredible the way they seek to minimise and reframe matters. All I want is a straight answer and an apology!

Hi Steve, thanks for the welcome. I recently read your article on the "Paranoia that will shut government" as I am putting together content for our Gov2.0 conference and it would be good to keep in touch re themes for this year, and if you have any recommendations for topics? I was looking how can Government agencies progress the Taskforce's recommendations and give access for staff to social media, enhance their skills, and encourage staff to utilise this channel for communication.

Easier said than done, I am sure you would agree, but looking to tackle this at the conference.

Any advice would be great. Cheers.

We're all paddling here. Roads closed. If I wanted to get home right now I couldn't

Thanks for your great post about APS and social media - a great summary of the tension/ resistance and very timely for us ATM.

Thanks for the compliment!

Did you see that my book has been translated in English? Perhaps you can use it in your network as well.

Good luck!

Thanks Steve. I am new to this sort of thing so it was nice to find your welcome on my page. I have spent most of my life working outside of government so will look with interest to see how this network pans out. I am currently working for the Gladstone Ports Corporation here in Gladstone in sunny Queensland - or should I say waterlogged and cyclone ravaged Qld!!

Look forward to being part of this network.

Hi Steve.

Thanks for the welcome.  I have been looking at these various blogs and forums and thought it was about time I joined and participated.

Looking forward to it all.

Thanks for your Christmas message Steve, hopefully the chaos will cease and the cork will pop on the champers soon.  Happy Christmas.
