Obligations of PSA Membership
Automatic Payment Service Agreement
We, the Public Service Association of NSW agree to the following commitments to you:
The PSA will debit/charge your membership fees as they fall due. However, if this day falls on a non-business day, they will be debited/charged on the next business day.
The PSA will only use this authority to debit/charge regular fees. If you miss a payment, it will be picked up in the following period i.e. two instalments will be taken out.
Resignation from the PSA must be notified according to the section “Manner of resignation from the PSA and CPSU”. Should you resign your membership, the PSA undertakes to cease debiting your account upon the termination of the written notice period.
The PSA will notify any changes to your union fees in “Red Tape”.
The PSA will act in accordance with our Privacy Statement, while noting that your financial institution may require such information to be provided in connection with a claim made on it relating to an alleged incorrect or wrongful debit.
The PSA will investigate and deal promptly with any queries, claims or complaints regarding debits/charges and provide a response within 21 days of receipt.
