The HorrorStory continues – Another CSC walks out – February 2018 (PDF version)

PSA members at St George CSC walked off the job to protest the poor implementation of ChildStory, and the danger it poses to staff, children and their families.

Our members are calling for the current issues that have been identified to be fixed and to delay the roll out of phase 2 until this is done.

FACS senior management, the Minister and the media are starting to pay attention. Now is the time to get involved, get active and keep up the momentum.

Talk to your workplace delegate or contact the PSA at to bring the action to your workplace.

United we bargain, divided we beg.

Mardi Gras 2018 – PSA here to slay – February 2018 (PDF version)

Members and staff of the PSA/CPSU NSW were instrumental in winning the Yes vote in last year’s postal survey. After a long and often difficult campaign, we finally came out victorious, and now it’s time to celebrate!

The PSA/CPSU NSW is affiliated with Union Pride, the LGBTI+ arm of Unions NSW, and we are inviting members who are part of the LGBTI+ community to join us in marching in the Mardi Gras Parade with other unionists from all over the country. Allies are welcome to join, but priority is given to LGBTI+ union members, as spaces are limited.

Register to march with Union Pride on parade day HERE.

Registrations close Monday 19 February 2018.

If you’re going to Fair Day, make sure you look out for the Union Pride stall.
