Shadow NSW Treasurer Damien Tudehope says the Minns government’s budget, to be handed down on Tuesday, is “for the union movement”.
NSW Treasurer Daniel Mookhey will deliver Labor’s first state budget in 13 years on Tuesday.
In a cost of living crisis, the focus is on what will be cut to pay for new spending, like public sector wage rises, and whether Labor can change the trajectory of the state’s debt.
“The only promises I think you can expect the government not to break tomorrow are the ones that they’ve made to the unions,” Mr Tudehope told Englishheadline Political Editor Andrew Clennell.
“This is a budget for the union movement, not necessarily a budget for the future of this state and the vision.”
