Pensioner campaigns for Centrelinks respect

Lillian Rock disability pensioner Gari Slater (pictured) is on a one-man campaign calling on Centrelink to respect their clients by not calling out their names in reception areas in front of strangers. He wants to see an RTA-style ticketing system be introduced and for the agencys call centre operators to stop writing their opinions on clients records.

Mr Slater, 49, set up his solo protest outside Centrelinks Conway Street office in Lismore on Monday but after a complaint by Centrelink management, moved it across the road. He said he would continue his campaign in Lismore for two weeks before travelling to other local towns. So far, around 100 people have signed his petition.
