On 24 August 2017 the PSA re-engineering dispute was listed in the Industrial Relations Commission (IRC).
NSW Police advised the IRC as follows:
The IRC made recommendations in accordance with the above undertakings and gave liberty for the parties to re-list the matter if re-engineering issues cannot be resolved.
The PSA General Secretary and Industrial staff also met with Deputy Commissioners Loy and Worboys on 24 August 2017.
The Deputy Commissioners affirmed the commitment to consultation and advised it is in the process of visiting Local Area Commands as part of its consultation process.
NSW Police undertook to provide details of visits to enable PSA attendance at relevant meetings.
The PSA sees the recent developments as positive and will work to protect members during this process.
