Unionists and the community fire up to fight Centrelink cuts
Centrelink is a corporatised agency, which in 1997 replaced the Department of Social Security. It currently has contracts to deliver services on behalf of seven government departments. As each expires, these contracts will be put out for private tender, forcing Centrelink to compete for the delivery of welfare services.
