DPI Water member bulletin

DPI Water member bulletin – September 2017 (PDF version)

The PSA notes the recent message from Simon Smith, Secretary of Department of Industry to staff advising of changes, following the interim report by Ken Matthews on water administration in NSW.

We note in particular the following changes:

  • Lands and Forestry Division will become Crown Lands and Water Division
  • Forest Policy, Research and Development will move out of that division and fall under DPI Strategy and Policy within Department of Primary Industries.
  • DPI Water will move out of the Department of Primary Industries and in to the new Crown Lands and Water Division

Whilst the Secretary anticipates limited structural disruption, the PSA has written to him to seek his ongoing commitment to consultation with the union where changes are considered that effect staff.

Are your details correct?

WaterNSW is currently in the middle of enterprise bargaining. It is anticipated that a proposal will soon be provided. The PSA want to make sure all those members effected have a say when it comes time to vote.
