NSW government ministers have slammed a ‘woke’ inclusion training seminar after they were told they should not refer to each other as ‘mate’.

The NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet conducted a series of ‘diversity and inclusion’ consultations this week.

They listed off a number of workplace changes including bans on drinking alcohol in the office, yelling at colleagues and gossiping about staff. 

The ‘Respect at Work’ seminars have been criticised by some ministers as ‘PC ­insanity’, ‘straight out of 1984’ and ‘mumbo jumbo’.

‘I use ‘mate’ all the time – it’s as ­Australian as you can get. How can it be offensive?’ one told The Daily Telegraph. 

Another added: ‘We’re not allowed to have ­individual opinions. We have to engage in group thought … This is straight out of 1984.’

All staff must be invited out to after-work drinks to ensure ‘inclusivity’ while work tasks must be fairly divided between senior and junior colleagues.
