Public services are the cornerstone of a civil society and the public servants who deliver those services perform functions of unmatched value for the people of NSW.

The Public Service Association (PSA) is THE public sector union and the proud defender of public services in NSW, representing employees in diverse roles across state government departments, state owned corporations, schools, universities and TAFEs.

Established in 1899, the PSA has a long and proud history of acting on behalf of its members in all aspects of their working lives, providing support, expert advice and individual as well as collective representation.
