Oldbaz,

Where do you read this article? I have had a quick look at the Vic Parks web site, but could not find any information.

The radio stated that if a park can be locked they will be locked. The others wont have rubbish removed or toilets cleaned.

Parks Vic have an updated on their website in the news section.

http://parkweb.vic.gov.au/about-us/news/some-parks-may-be-affected-by-proposed-industrial-action

It looks like in the grand scheme of all Vic's Parks it's fairly minimal.
