Unions NSW secretary Mark Lennon said Mr Baird should back his optimistic predictions by reversing plans to slash tens of thousands of public sector jobs across the state.

"In the past two years we have seen more than 20,000 jobs lined up to be ripped from the public sector," Mr Lennon said in a statement.

"We have seen billions torn out of the state's education and health budgets.

"If Mr Baird truly believes there is sunshine ahead for the NSW economy, he needs to reverse his cuts to jobs and services."
